Sanatan BOG

Saturday, December 02, 2017

THE first Fiji Sanatan Battle of the Giants gets underway at the Xavier College grounds in Ba today.

The three-day event has attracted 14 football teams in the open category while seven will participate in the veteran's category.

Netball will also be played alongside football.

After the success of the Inter District Championship in July in Nadi, it was decided to hold the BOG to develop more interest in the sport to fight non-communicable diseases.

Shree Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha Fiji sports wing acting secretary Jyotish Praveen Singh said Navua was the top seed in the open category.

"Navua reached the final of our IDC losing to Manukau in the final," Singh said.

"Makoi will be the team to look out for in the veteran's category.

"We will hold an awards presentation ceremony on Saturday to recognise the achievements of the players, coaches and administrators for the season."

Lautoka and Ba will clash in the opening match at 8am.

Pools: Open Grade: Pool One: Lautoka, National Youth, Ba, Nakasi; Pool Two: Drasa, National Brahmans, Nadi; Pool Three: Varoka/Tavarau Nasinu, Suva; Pool Four: Votualevu, Wairabetia, Navua, Rewa.

Veterans: Pool One: Drasa, Ba, Suva, Lautoka; Pool Two: Makoi, Wairabetia, Nabua.
