FIJI soccer giant 4R Electric Ba has reaffirmed its stand that it will never recruit overseas players to feature in the upcoming O'League championship.
Team president Rishi Kumar maintained his earlier stand of utilising local talent for the Men in Black.
"As the practice in the past, we believe in local talent and Ba will never get players from abroad," he said.
"We have an abundance of talent here in Ba and we don't want to waste this talent by recruiting overseas players.
"Money cannot buy glory and nothing beats the feeling of winning the tournament with local players.
"We have won many titles with local players and we will continue utilising home grown talent."
Kumar said the side had set its aim on playing in this year's O'League final.
He said the team had featured once in the final and the target was to improve on their previous performance.
Kumar said the $50,000 sponsorship from Vodafone was a timely boost for the players to fulfil their O'League dream.
"Our aim is to play in the final and the players know what is expected of them.
"The financial assistance from Vodafone will inspire the boys to play well and I am confident the side will do well this season."
Kumar said the competition would be tough as all teams would want to win the O'League title.
And he also rated Nadi as one of the teams to beat in the competition.
