5-a-side backing

LAUTOKA soccer team sponsors Design Engineering Fiji Limited is backing the 5-a-side tournament which will be held at the South Seas Club Futsal ground next week.

A total of 24 teams will be accommodated in the three-day tournament.

The idea to hold the tournament was mooted by former Lautoka Football Association vice president Faiaaz Ali.

This is after the club delegates turned down an offer to hold the local league competition prior to the annual congress which is on hold.

Ali said many clubs were interested in competing in the abbreviated code.

"The tournament was supposed to be played last weekend but was washed out because of the heavy rain," he said.

"The turf has been marked and looks neat. There will be no problem playing night games because new floodlights have been fixed compliments of Sigatoka Electric.

"Invitations have been extended to the Lautoka clubs and many former district reps will be participating."

Salesh Samy, Alvin Avinesh and Vijendra Deepak are some of the Lautoka players who represented the national Futsal team.

A meeting for teams will be held at the South Seas Club Futsal arena next Tuesday at 5.30pm.

The tournament will start on February 27.
