THE P Meghji-sponsored five-a-side tournament at the South Seas Club in Lautoka this weekend has attracted big interest.

About 20 teams have been confirmed for the three-day event which starts on Friday evening.

Abinesh Salesh Samy's United Sangam is the top seed after winning the Design Engineering-sponsored tournament last month.

Tigers, with Abbu Zahid Shaheed and Mohammed Shaiyaz, will be the side to look out for. Tournament co-ordinator Faiaaz Ali said the number of district reps per team would be restricted. Ali said the idea was to create an even playing field.

"The tournament has attracted huge interest," he said.

"This is after the success of the first event where eight teams participated. The number of district reps per team will be restricted to two only.

"In the last tournament the Combined Brothers team had all the Lautoka reps. We are trying to promote the sport.

"The teams will need to wear proper uniforms. Fiji Football Association vice-president Tarunesh Reddy has been invited to officially open the tournament."

Teams that have confirmed participation are Southern Forest, Modern Electric, Hire Equip, P Meghji, Carpenters, Supercool, United Sangam, ACR Combine, Tavakubu Strikers, Tigers, Why Worry, Design Engineering, British American Tabacco, Nadi Jetset, Amalgamated Pest Control, BSP, FSC, Fiji Gas, Telecom and Williams & Gosling. The winner will receive $350.
