Change looms in NCC

THE National Club Championship will undergo changes next year, says Fiji Football Association vice-president Yogeshwar Singh.

He said teams would have to play a certain number of games before they are nominated for the championship.

"A requirement will be given for the amount of games that a certain team needs to play and qualify. This is in line with the management's requirement. For example where teams participate in the Oceania Champions League, for any country or member association, clubs that play in that league should play a minimum of 14 games to qualify. That is the structure that we want to put into the NCC next year.

"This is why in the southern zone, they don't have Lami and Nasinu. We're also going to be very strict on registration because a lot of teams are nominated and the players are not registered and some of these teams, their registrations are overdue and they come in the last minute and renew it. For example, Tavua had nominated a club, but we found out that half the players were not registered

"These are some of the things that all teams should note when taking part in the club championship."

Singh reminded club officials that it is important to check if all players are registered.

"There were nine teams nominated from the West and South and unfortunately there were none from the North.

"We at Fiji football will take in strict actions to see that all teams do qualify and take part in this very important competition."

Fiji FA chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf said they would restructure the clubs that would be nominated for NCC.

"We can select the best team for the competition," he said.
