$15K Boost For NCC

Fiji Football Association received a cheque of $15,000 from CJ Patel and Company Limited for hosting the 2015 Rooster National Club Championship.
Handing over the cheque was National Senior Sales Manager Lawrence Khan who wished the team well for the 2015 competition.
“It is indeed a proud moment to launch another edition of the Rooster National Club championship.
“This competition over the years has provided a platform for players to excel their football career and as sponsors we are proud to join hands with Fiji Football in bringing the Rooster NCC,” Khan said.
“We believe this investment is a positive one for the growth of football in the country.
“2015 has been a positive year for football in Fiji, who can forget the 3-0 victory over Honduras at the FIFA U20 World Cup and on top of that a dream qualification to the Rio Olympics,” he added.
Khan also stated they have worked hard to strengthen the sports in the country.
“Club competition in Fiji has lost a bit of interest over the years and that has inspired us as sponsors to work with Fiji FA in reviving this competition.”
Fiji Football Vice President Yogeshwar Singh acknowledged the sponsorship and calls for a fair play.
“We want to thank CJ Patel for coming on board to support the NCC.
“We calling on teams to play fair and avoid penalties so that there is no need for a red card,” Singh said.
The zonal competition will be held this weekend with the finals to be played next weekend.
In the Southern Zone, 11 teams have been drawn in three pools with all three pool winners and two best runners up qualifying for the finals.
Six teams have been drawn in two pools for the western competition with the top two teams from each pool and the best runner up qualifying for the finals
