Rewa won its seventh B.O.G title after their 2-0 win over  4R Electrical Ba.

Eight Premier teams competed for over two weeks and the tournament lived up to expectations.

The participation of the Vodafone Fijian U20 reps at the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand and the U23 team at the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea boosted the competition to a new level.

Fiji FA vice-president and national team director Tarunesh Reddy commended the effort.

“The U20 players and the U23 players featured well for their respective teams,”Reddy said.

“Playing at the FIFA U20 WC gave our players more exposure and they showed their class in the tournament.”
