FACT dates set

THE 2014 Vodafone Fiji FACT will be staged at Rau Cakobau Park in Nausori over two weekends in June.

The group stage will be held from June 20-22 while the semi-finals and final will be played from June 28-29.

Fiji Football Association chief executive officer Bob Kumar said the group stage was initially supposed to be played at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Kumar said the dates for the Fiji FACT had to be rescheduled to June because of the Oceania under-19 playoffs which would be played in the country in May.

"Initially we had decided that the group stages will be played in Suva and the finals in Nausori, but we had to change that decision," he said.

"This is because the Oceania U19 championship will be staged in Fiji in May.

"The Suva venue is not available on the new dates so the Fiji FA board decided that it would be in the best interest to take the entire tournament to Ratu Cakobau Park."

Nadi will defend the title. The side defeated Ba 3-1 in the final at Prince Charles Park last year.

Like last season, eight Super Premier teams will feature in the main competition.

Kumar said the date for the pool draws would be announced soon.

The Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants will be played at Prince Charles Park in Nadi and Govind Park in Ba while the Courts Inter District Championship will be played at the ANZ Stadium.
