The Red Devils soccer team of Nadi are on par to clinch the inaugural Island Pacific Apparel-sponsored Nadi Futsal Football tournament yesterday.

Staged at the Nadi Muslim College grounds, the side outclassed their opponents yesterday.

The side laced with district reps like Shafim Buksh, William Valentine, Mohammed Salmin and Lekima Gonerau defeated North Pole (Suva) in the first semi-final 2-1 to qualify while Navaki (Nadi) defeated Dhanji Boys (Suva) 7-3.

The Red Devils beat Navaki 4-1.

Red Devils walked away with $750 while Navakai bagged $200 and the losing semi-finalists received $100 each.

Sponsor, Island Pacific Apparel has promised an increase in sponsorship for next year.

“Island Pacific Apparel has praised the success of the event with a total of 40 teams participating in the inaugural event,” said tournament co-ordinator Mohammed Nadeem.

“The level of competition was beefed up with futsal dominating teams from Suva, Nausori and Navua, but after this event, we can say that even Western Division have a lot of potential.

“Western teams proved to be equally challenging and we saw that in the final match with two Nadi teams battling it out.

He says the Futsal Tournament will now be an annual event in Nadi.
