Suva local league competition called off

ORGANISERS of the Suva local league soccer competition were forced to call off their games at the very last minute.

Suva Football Association vice-president and competition chairman Niranjan Prasad said they were keen on finishing the competition before the deadline but might not be able to do so.

"We had booked the University of the South Pacific grounds after the Fiji Sports Council told us that Buckhurst and Bidesi parks were booked for cricket," he said.

"But then just today (yesterday), we were informed by USP that we cannot play on their grounds as well."

Prasad said persistent bad weather could be result of the decision by USP to disallow them from playing on their premises.

"But since no grounds are available, we are postponing our games for the meantime.

"I think the games would be played after the completion of the Battle of the Giants soccer tournament.

"But if any team in the local league has any queries about anything, they can contact me on 3382868."
