The much anticipated match between Vodafone and Digicel in the Suva Businesshouse Soccer League ended with Vodafone winning the match 1-0.   Vodafone and Digicel are fierce competitors in the mobile communications industry.

The rivalry was evident in the field in a fiercely contested match as both teams tried to out-play the other.

In the end Vodafone prevailed through a goal to striker Atish Lal who collected a rebound from a free-kick to neatly place the ball beyond a diving Digicel keeper. The captain of the Vodafone side, Dinesh Chand said, “It was tough match, but our boys played according to the game plan to come out victorious in the end.  It always feels great to get one over your competitor.  I am proud of the way our boys played as we now set our sights on winning the league with three matches to go.”

Vodafone Fiji chief executive officer, Pradeep Lal said, “We encourage and support our staff to take part in sports and active lifestyle activity to maintain a work-life balance for healthy living.

“I congratulate team Vodafone for a hard fought win.” Vodafone Fiji
