Message by the Fiji Football Association
CEO Mohammed Yusuf’s for 2017 INKK Mobile Battle of the Giants
The INKK Battle of the Giants is gearing up to be one of the best football tournaments to be held in this country. Given that the new national coach has made a lot of inroads in improving the standard of Fiji soccer. We are no longer playing the kick and chase, we are playing the possess football like the European teams do.
The national team has played six matches under that concept and it is providing results. Lately we have seen Rewa, Ba, Lautoka and Labasa playing that style of soccer.
Fan can come and expect to watch some good possession football where they will hardly see any kick and chase.
That will make the whole tournament interesting and at the moment out of the eight teams anyone can win the battle of the giants.
Fans are urged to come out in big numbers, in their team colours to support their teams.
Labasa will be doing a lot of buildup from Labasa this evening to make sure that people have all the opportunities.
They’re making sure that all the car parks are available and they are also working with police to ensure good traffic flow.
So northern Fijians can be rest assured that everything is ready for the tournament to kick off on Friday.
