Labasa will host the 2016 Fiji FACT tournament at Subrail Park from June 17-19.

Labasa and Savusavu special administrator, Vijay Chand welcomed the decision made by the Fiji Football Association board members.

“We haven’t had a major tournament in Labasa for some time now,” he said.

“Labasa town is ready so it’s a good time to play a tournament here especially when Labasa are the defending Fiji FACT champions.”

“Hosting the Fiji FACT pool games in Labasa will boost business in the Northern town as we hope to host the semi-finals and finals as well.”

Chand said the turnout for all football tournaments staged at Subrail Park has always been good.

Similar sentiments came from the president of the Chamber of Commerce North Satish Kumar.

He said businesshouses have waited for a long time to host such a big tournament.

“In the last soccer tournament, we had a good turnout in Labasa and businesshouses really benefited from it,” Kumar added.
