Fiji FA sets completion date

THE Fiji Football Association wants to complete the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League competition by September 21.

Fiji FA chief executive Bob Kumar said only a few games remained in the competition but they should have completed the competition sooner.

"The league competition has been prolonged and we hope to complete all the league games by September 21," he said.

"This would give more time for the districts to prepare for the IDC competition which is from October 8 to 12."

However, currently, the Fiji FA is involved in the player's transfer window which opened on September 1.

Kumar said no player had showed any interest but they were told not to leave their applications to the last minute.

"This transfer window is for all those players who are either switching districts or clubs and even for new registrations. I think it's important all club players get properly registered because the club competition is next month and all player licence cards would be checked.

"Also in the past players and districts come on the last week of the transfer window to get things done but we request if they could all approach their districts first, get their papers in order and then file an application with the $25 fee for way before the deadline."

Meanwhile, Kumar said the Fiji FA was not ready to reveal how much income was generated from the Battle of the Giants tournament.

"We still haven't got the actual figures and amounts yet so when we do, we will then know how much income was generated from the tournament."
