Business house football heats up

DIGICEL is still in the run for the top prize in the Suva Business House Football competition.

Despite losing to arch-rivals Vodafone in the round two competitions last Saturday at the USP grounds in Suva, the side is in a good position to advance into the next stage.

Suva Business House Football Association president Navneel Naidu said Digicel was third on the points table.

He said the team had a good chance of making the semi-final with three weeks of games left in the elimination rounds.

"We are following the Super Rugby format where the top two qualifies in the semis while the others battle in the playoffs to get the remaining two spots," Naidu said.

The business house competition which is in its revival stage has seven teams competing.

Apart from mobile communication industries Digicel and Vodafone, FEA, J S Hill, USP, ANZ and Coca-Cola are also competing.

CORRECTION

On August 14, 2014, we published a story on Page 36 wrongly stating that Vodafone had won the business house soccer competition in Suva. Vodafone defeated Digicel in a round of games but the competition is still on. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.
