FIJI Football Association is hoping for a huge crowd turnout in the final rounds of the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants tournament in Suva this weekend.

After an "average" turnout in the opening three days of the tournament at Ba's Govind Park, Fiji FA competitions manager Amitesh Pal said they were looking forward to a better crowd at the ANZ Stadium.

Pal said with a southern versus western final guaranteed, the competition in the semi-finals would be an exciting one.

"The better teams from the group stages have qualified and we are expecting big games this weekend," Pal said.

"We have also delayed the semi-finals by one hour to give enough time for fans to come and enjoy the games."

Suva will play Rewa in the first semi-final at 3pm followed by the Ba versus Lautoka match at 5pm this Saturday.

Pal said the two Western teams also had a good fan base in Suva.

"We have a good fan base for Ba and Lautoka here in Suva so we expect their fans to come out in numbers as well."
