Rain washes away Futsal tournament

Maciu Malo
Friday, November 24, 2017

THE biggest annual Futsal competition scheduled in Nadi this weekend has been postponed to a later date.

Organisers of the Pacific Apparel Futsal Carnival have deferred the event because of the adverse weather.

A total of 48 main teams, 17 masters teams and 16 under-17 teams have been confirmed for the event

Tournament official Nadeem Mohammed said the safety of the players and the officials were paramount resulting in the postponement.

The tournament, which is supported by Hais Autoport, has attracted teams from all over the country.

"We have postponed the tournament because of the bad weather," Mohammed.

"We believe that teams from as far as Vanua Levu and the southern districts will find it hard travelling in this wet weather which is the reason we have shifted the event."

He said all teams had been preparing well for the event as this would be the fourth anniversary.

Defending champion North Pole Friends of Valelevu is expected to face tough competition because all teams had been given more time to prepare.

Mohammed thanked the sponsors for their commitment to promote Futsal.

He said the theme for the tournament was eradicating family violence and he thanked the Ministry of Women for its support.
