THE Ba Football Association will be offering one of the biggest prize purse for its 2014 local league competition after securing a total sponsorship worth $20,000.

The top four place getters in the competition will share $9000 with the winner walking away $5000 richer.

The Ba local league kicks off at Govind Park this Sunday with a total of 11 clubs which have been divided in two groups. Pool A has defending champions 4R Electrical, GM Ba, Race Course, Nailaga and Tauvegavega.

Pool B has FSC, Veisaru, Tauvegavega Youth, Young Brothers and Wailailai Sonic.

Association secretary Iliaz Khan said this year's competition would be hotly contested with lucrative prizemoney at stake.

Khan said several clubs would include district reps.

"This is one of the biggest sponsorship in the country for the local club competition," he said.

Avinesh Waran Suwamy will spearhead the 4R Electrical campaign.

Mavileko Nakama will feature for GM Ba while young goalkeeper Misiwani Narube will play for Nailaga.

Khan said the competition should end before November in time to nominate the two teams for the annual National Club Championship.

"The two top teams from each pool will qualify for the semi-finals," he said.

"The highest goal scorer will receive the golden boot award while there will be an award for the best disciplined team as well."

The committee to oversee the 2014 local league include: Azam Ali (Chairman-Nailaga); Rajesh Kumar (Secretary-Veisaru); Mohammed Shafeel (Member-Young Brothers) and Taito Bula (Member-Nailaga).
