THE Nadi Football Association held a private celebration for its players for winning the Vodafone Fiji FACT title back to back at the Nadi Civic Centre last night.

Nadi defeated Suva 1-0 in the final at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori last Sunday to claim the title for the third time.

Amani Makoe was the hero for the Shop N Save Jetsetters nailing the winner in extra time.

The $15,000 prizemoney was distributed among the players. The key players received about $500 each. Tappoo Group of Companies and Chicken Express provided gift packs for the players and team officials.

Association president Navneeda Gounder said the private function was to honour the players and family members for their sacrifice.

Gounder said their goal remains to secure a spot in the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League next season.

Nadi also won the Fiji FACT title back in 1996 beating Lautoka 4-0 in the final.
