SUVA will be taking part in the Melanesian Super Cup competition which will be played in Vanuatu from September 26 to October 3.

Suva Football Association president Mahend Prasad said they received the invitation on Wednesday from the organisers and was awaiting the approval of Fiji Football Association.

Fiji FA CEO Bob Kumar confirmed receiving Suva's request yesterday and would finalise their approval today.

Prasad said they were excited with the opportunity to play against top teams in the Melanesian Cup.

The tournament which hopes to provide more competition in the region at elite level will feature champion clubs from Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.

"We are looking forward to playing in this tournament.

"By then, all our league games should be completed and the players will be free to play in this competition," Prasad said.

"It should be a good build-up for IDC (Inter District Championship).

"We are excited to play the top clubs in the region."

Meanwhile the All Freights Logistic-sponsored Suva side has started preparing for its remaining Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League matches.

The Gurjit Singh-coached side is yet to play Rewa, Ba and Lautoka.

Suva needed a win to book its spot in the Oceania Football Confederation Champions League.

"The team resumed training yesterday (Wednesday) without the coach who should be back into the country by Wednesday," Prasad said.

The Whites leads the NFL points table on 27 points followed by Ba on 22.
