Any person wanting to contest the Fiji Football Association president’s post should have served as a Fiji FA vice- president for at least three years of the five years prior to the date of the annual congress.

This was agreed during the annual congress at Fiji FA headquarters in Suva on Wednesday.

Also on the district level, if a person is to contest for the position of president, then he or she will need to serve the district association as a vice-president or as an executive committee member for at least three out of the last five years.

Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel believes this is line with the Oceania Football Confederations (OFC) guideline.

“Districts gave their full support to Fiji FA and happy with the progress made so far,”Patel said.

“They were very happy with it and they have supported the motion and we were happy with that.

“The districts felt there is a need for consistency in the districts and also in Fiji FA and administrators need to learn fully the roles of leadership before taking leadership of districts or the parent body.

The other motion filed by Ba Football Association to allocate more gatetakings from the Courts Inter-District Championship to Super Premier district was defeated. The current practice sees all the Super Premier and Premier districts receiving the same amount from the total gate-takings from the tournament.

“The motion from Ba for unequal distributions between Super Premier and Premier was defeated.”

Audited Accounts

“We had a very good annual report, people had chance to ask questions and were satisfied,”he said.

World Cup

The focus is on 2015 U20 World Cup in New Zealand, the 2015 Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea, O-League with the participation of Ba and Suva, the OFC U17 Championship in American Samoa.
