HOSTS Rewa has been drawn in an exciting group with giants Ba and Labasa for the Vodafone Fiji FACT.

Rewa leads Group A with Ba, Labasa and Nadroga while defending champions Nadi is grouped with Suva, Navua and Lautoka.

The tournament will be played over two weekends starting from June 20 to 22 with the group stage of competition followed by the finals from June 28 and 29 at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel said this year's tournament would coincide with the 2014 FIFA World Cup which will be played in Brazil.

He said they hoped this would boost the performance of the players.

Patel thanked sponsors Vodafone Fiji and CJ Patel Group consortium for their support.

Vodafone Fiji presented $75,000 to the Fiji FA in organising the tournament.

"Vodafone Fiji FACT provides a platform for our Fijian players to make name for themselves, the opportunity to portray their football talents and also earn a name for their districts" said the Vodafone Fiji chief marketing officer Sanjeewa Perera.

"The Vodafone Fiji FACT will be our mini version of World Cup."

The winner of the tournament will receive $15,000.
