FOUR players were tested positive for drugs and have been suspended by Fiji Football Association.

The testing was done during the Courts Inter District Championship held at Lautoka's Churchill Park.

Fiji FA chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf on Sunday confirmed the players involved included three senior division players and one premier division player.

He said players had been warned.

"These players will appear before the disciplinary committee and if found guilty we will release their names," said Yusuf.

"We need to educate the players especially in the senior division to get away from drugs.

"We are supporting the government's initiative in try to eradicate the use of drugs in sport."

Yusuf has called on players to keep away from such activities.

It is believed that the super premier player involved missed out in the IDC final on Sunday.
