FFA to reschedule dates

THE Vodafone Fiji FACT will most probably coincide with the FIFA World Cup in Brazil in June. The dates for the first major tournament of the year are yet to be released.

The tournament is scheduled to be played at the ANZ Stadium in Suva and Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel said the dates for the tournament would be rescheduled because of the upcoming international tournaments in the country.

Patel said holding the Fiji FACT during the World Cup month would create more interest.

"It will certainly not be held during the opening and the closing of the World Cup," he said.

"The World Cup creates a lot of hype and is the biggest sporting event. It will be ideal to hold the Fiji FACT then with all the excitement."

The Oceania Champions League will be played in Lautoka and Ba next month.

This will be followed by the Oceania under-20 playoffs in Suva in May.

The pool games for the Fiji FACT are scheduled to be played at the ANZ Stadium while the semi-finals and final are scheduled to be played at Ratu Cakobau Park.

Nadi will defend the title.
