The 2nd Island Pacific Apparel sponsored 5-a-side event will be held at Nadi Muslim College grounds on October 24-25.

Tournament co-ordinator, Nadeem Mohammed said a total of 40 teams will compete for the Late Mohammed Rafique Cup, $1100 cash and medals.

He said Nadi will be hosting the country’s biggest 5-a-side soccer and believes the two day event will assemble Fiji’s best Futsal talents to one platform. Thus will allow the Futsal coaches to identify and select some of the best for National duties too.

Defending champions Red Devils laced Nadi reps William Valentine and Shafim Buksh other big names include Civic FC from Suva, Northpole, 4R Ltd Men In Black and Namaka from Nadi but the heat is will be felt as Wantok FC laced with Solomon Islanders from USP.

“Last year, we had the winner getting $750 cash and a trophy but this year, I am happy to announce that the winner will get $1100, trophy and medals too.

Thank our major sponsors Island Pacific Apparel for the gesture of increasing the total sponsorship and Bashir Patel and Family of Hai’s Autoport from Canada for the main trophies and other individual awards.

Mohammed also confirmed that the tournament runner up receives $350 cash, trophy and medals while the semi-finalists will get $100 each for their effort. Awards for Golden Boot, Golden Gloves, Best and Fairest Team and Most Valuable player are at stake.

Mohammed has reminded other teams to register quickly as very few spots are available.
