Plans to better awards

THE Fiji Football Association wants to make its annual awards presentation ceremony bigger and better organised next year.

Last minute changes had to be made for the Global Flight Centre-sponsored ceremony at the Tanoa Waterfront Hotel in Lautoka last Saturday.

The program was supposed to be held in open air but heavy rain in the afternoon forced organisers to move the function indoors.

The weather also affected the turnout.

Only three districts — Lautoka, Nadi and Navua — were represented.

Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel said they had to squeeze the awards program on their calendar because of the overlapping season and time constraints.

Patel said the new ambassador of the year award would be given out annually.

"We have plans for the program to make it bigger and better catering for about 400 to 500 people," he said.

"The sponsors have agreed to that. We created the new ambassador of the year award which was given to Roy Krishna.

"We have players featuring for overseas clubs and we want to recognise their achievements as well.

"This is because they fly Fiji's flag and it helps in our tourism marketing."
