Spain Tour Cost $450K

Fiji Football Association will need $450, 000 for the Vodafone Fijian Under-23 tour to Spain next year.
Fiji FA vice-president/team director Tarunesh Reddy confirmed they have lined up quality matches.
“To send a team to Spain for a five-week tour we are looking at $450,000 and the airfares itself is over $150, 000,” Reddy said.
He said the tour would be a big plus for the boys and the Rio Olympics as a whole.
“Playing against national teams or clubs will be a huge boost because the boys will get that level of exposure.
“And because they are preparing for Rio Olympics in August we have made a decision to spend this amount because we believe they will benefit from it.
Reddy also said this would be the first Fijian football team that will play in Spain.
The team will leave for Spain on January 13.
