"So, we want to thank the Fiji Sports Commission for its partnership with us in securing the funds for the winners."

Yesterday was the final day of registration for all clubs. Puamau confirmed 32 men's and women's teams had registered.

"We have closed the registration. There are 20 men's and 12 women's teams."
