Cricket Fiji secures pitch for competitions

AFTER years of struggle for a venue, Cricket Fiji has finally secured a pitch for its upcoming competitions.

In a statement, Cricket Fiji confirmed it would soon have access to the vacant ground behind ANZ Stadium, near Bidesi Park, and the Fiji Hockey Federation's facility.

The ground will be leased by Cricket Fiji from the Fiji Sports Council along with the vacant property adjacent to the ground, which will serve as the new headquarters for the organisation's office staff members.

Cricket Fiji general manager Inoke Lesuma said it was a huge achievement in the development of Fiji's cricketers.

"Some weekends this year — approximately six — the ground is already booked for events hosted by soccer, athletics and rugby league," he said.

"But I just can't stress enough what it will mean for our player to have access to a facility every week for 12 months of the year.

"We will be in walking distance from the national gymnasium and all other facilities in the sporting precinct, which aligns well with our aims for our High Performance Program.

"Plus having access to a ground year-round with international standard changing room facilities, full-time groundsmen and 24/7 security will help us in luring international teams to tour here."

Lesuma said they were expecting the ground to be ready for use by the end of the month.
