Football fans are invited to watch the Vodafone Fijian Secondary Schools Soccer Championship  currently underway at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori.

Fiji Secondary School Football Association president Aminesh Ram said competition was quite exciting.

“The standard of the game is quite good and compared to other years, it has really gone up,” Ram said.

“It is likely because of our team taking part in the FIFA U20 World Cup, the students have seen them play and look up to them.”

Ram applauded the participation of Latter Day Saints (LDS).

“I would like to thank LDS, they played last year’s finalists Kamil College and their goalkeeper was marvellous,” he said.

“Even though they lost 2-0 they put on a really good performance. National goalkeeper Misiwane Narube played for Kamil and he really had a tough time against LDS.

“It’s good the players are exposed to competitive football and they learn so many things but the newcomers are really doing well and adjusting slowly to the competition.”

Ram urged all the students, teachers and parents to come to Ratu Cakobau Park with the quarterfinals to be played today.

Meanwhile, Vodafone sales manager Rajinesh Prasad officially opened the tournament and urged the players to strive for the best.

Vodafone Fijian U20 coach Frank Farina, Fiji FA technical director and Ravinesh Kumar also attended.
