THE Fiji under-19 soccer team has moved camp from Ba to Suva this week as part of preparations for the U19 World Cup qualifiers.

Coach Ravinesh Kumar said the main purpose of the move was to let the players feel the atmosphere of the ANZ Stadium and familiarise and adjust to the weather conditions in the Capital City.

"We have to move to Suva to allow the players to get the feel of the ANZ Stadium so that they are well-versed when it comes to competition day," he said.

"This week, we will be working on the finishing part of our preparations and rectify parts we felt needed to be strengthened."

Kumar said some players were nursing minor injuries and were expected to be medically fit by next week.

Fiji will play Samoa, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands in the event next week.
