Boost for Suva soccer

THE Suva soccer side received a major sponsorship boost ahead of the Vodafone Fiji FACT.

The Fiji FACT is scheduled to be played at the Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on June 20 to 22 (pool games) and 28 to 29 (semi-finals and final).

Yesterday, South Seas Logistics (SSL) announced they would sponsor the side for the Fiji FACT.

Suva last won the Fiji FACT in 2012 and this time, they are pooled with defending champions Nadi, Lautoka and Navua.

Suva Football Association president Mahend Prasad said they can now better prepare the team for the tough tournament.

"The $10,000 cash and kind sponsorship would carry us a long way," he said.

"It's so hard to run an association with limited funding so any form of assistance is much appreciated.

"We would like to thank South Seas Logistics for coming on board to sponsor the team for the Fiji FACT."

SSL general manager Vikash Pal said this was their way of giving back to the community.

"It was a childhood dream of mine to be in the Suva soccer side and now, I am a part of the team because of this deal," he said.

"The expectation from us is for the team to go out there and win."
