Fiji FACT champs to share prizemoney equally

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, July 02, 2014

MEMBERS of the Shop and Save Nadi team will share the $15,000 prizemoney they won during the Vodafone Fiji FACT tournament at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori over the weekend.

This is according to team president Navneeda Goundar after the men-in-green defeated South Seas Logistic Suva 1-0 in the final to win the title for two years in a row.

He said players and team officials had sacrificed a lot for the tournament and deserved the reward.

"The prizemoney will be shared equally by the team management and players," said Goundar.

"This is our token of thanks and appreciation for the boys' superb performance.

"No one thought we would win the game and I commend the team for their commitment and hard work.

"I think the win has won back the hearts of our fans after our dismal performance during the O'League early this year."

Goundar said they would not have a big celebration but the players and their families would be hosted to a dinner by the association.

Under Goundar's reign as president, Nadi has won the FACT title for three years (1996, 2013, 2014).
