A NEW form of football is expected to hit Suva this weekend and will involve the whole family.

It is called the Mom N Pop League.

It is being introduced to promote the sport and get the family involved, especially parents, to allow a safe and enjoyable environment of playing the sport.

It was introduced in Lautoka and Ba last month, and tomorrow Fiji FA officials will be at Albert Park, Suva, to introduce the code.

"The program is basically for children under the age of 10 to come with their parents and enjoy this football program organised by Fiji Football Association (Fiji FA)," Fiji FA chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf said.

"It is an initiative of the technical department with the help of Just Play program volunteers.

"The program would offer people from different walks of life to play football without discrimination and without the need for a major infrastructure."

Fiji FA development officer and former national rep, Ronald Ram said his technical team was looking forward to a positive outcome in Suva this weekend after successful conclusions in Lautoka and Ba last month.

"The sessions organised includes fun games with messages, football techniques and free football match for kids and also for mums and dads," he said.

He said the 10-week Mom N Pop League would bring everybody together as depicted in their philosophy "Equality and Unity through Football to build a better Fiji."

The first of the 10-week program starts tomorrow from 10am to 12noon at Albert Park in Suva.
