STAR studded Namaka will be the team to beat in the Nadi Football Association local league competition which starts at Prince Charles Park on Sunday.

Namaka has roped in players such as Samuela Drudru, Vereti Dickson, Benaminio Matainaqara, Ilimotama Jese, Krishna Sami and Jone Salauneune to boost its campaign in the super premier division this year.

Nadi Football chief executive officer Salen Kumar said Namaka recruited many experienced players in the last transfer window.

Kumar said Namaka would hold the advantage with the district reps in the team.

"Our 2014 season will start on Sunday," he said.

"Nawaicoba Youth is the lone new club in the competition. The side will play in the premier division.

"Downtown Blues which won the premier grade last year has moved up to the super premier division."

DCA Sports won the super premier division last year while Blues Sports Club was the runner-up.

Both teams represented Nadi at the 2013 National Club Championship.

The official opening will be done at 8.45am on Sunday.

Matches will kick off at 9.30am.
