THE Fiji Football Association has set a budget of $250,000 for the international friendly matches planned for the year.

This was revealed by Fiji FA chief executive officer, Mohammed Yusuf to this newspaper.

"The budget set was for international matches that will only allow for two or three matches, but we are going out of our way to accommodate the matches as we are looking for sponsors and help from the Government," he said.

"We will play international matches in Fiji and overseas.

"Estonia is coming to Fiji in November and it will be a big match since Estonia will be coming with a 37-member delegation."

Fiji has played two matches each against New Zealand, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia earlier this year and more are planned.

"Estonia will have some coaching clinics in Fiji and will be going to a few schools as part of their social responsibility.

"They will be in the country for six days where they will play one match against Fiji and the rest of the time they will do development work with coaches and schools," Yusuf said.
