Business house soccer revived in the Capital City

BUSINESS house football is back in the Capital City following the formation of the Suva Business House Football Association.

The association, which was formed early this year, has so far attracted seven business teams.

These teams will be participating in the 2014 Business House Soccer League which started yesterday at the USP Maile grounds.

Teams that played in the opening round include Vodafone, Digicel, USP, ANZ, J. S. Hill, Coca-Cola and FEA.

The league will run for 14 weeks and two rounds of games will be played before the inaugural winner is decided.

"This new initiative will not only develop new relations on the field but also off the field.

"It is definitely an ideal way to create a sense of corporation and team bonding amongst the business organisations," association president Navneel Naidu said.

"We hope that this league will reap benefits for all the participating teams."

Naidu said despite failing to secure any sponsorship, the timely corporation and income generated from membership and registration fees had supported the start of this league.
