DEFENDING Battle of the Giants champions and co-hosts, Ba has been drawn in a tough pool for this year's tournament.

The pool games of the Inkk Mobile-sponsored tournament are scheduled from August 22 to 24 at Govind Park and the Men in Black would play games against Rewa, Nadi and Labasa in Pool B competition.

Pool A consists of last year's runner-up Lautoka, Suva, Nadroga and Navua.

The semi-finals and final would be played at the ANZ Stadium in Suva on August 30 and 31.

Capital City side coach Gurjeet Singh said it was very hard to predict which sides would qualify for the semi-finals because all teams would come prepared.

"The pools look tough and competition would be very tough because all teams come well prepared whenever they compete in tournaments," he said.

"Pool B is very tough because we cannot underestimate any team in the competition."

The draws were conducted at the Fiji Football Association headquarters where tournament sponsor's Inkk Mobile announced an increase in sponsorship.

CJ Patel (Pacific) Limited marketing director Nathan Hildebrand said they had increased sponsorship by $5000.

"This is the sixth year for us to sponsor the tournament and we are pleased to announce that sponsorship has increased from $55,000 to $60,000," he said.

Fiji FA vice president commended Inkk Mobile for their support.

"Their support has taken soccer to a whole new level in the country," he said.

Meanwhile, there is no increment in prizemoney with the winner receiving $11,000, the runner-up $4000 while the third placed side would get $1500.
