Gym Opens In Ba

The Fiji Football Association has climbed a step further after a fully equipped fitness center and physiotherapist lab was opened last Sunday at Fiji Football Association Technical Centre Ba Academy.

Federation International Football Association (FFA) vice president and Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) president David Chung was the chief guest at the inauguration of the gymnasium which was funded by the  FIFA Income Generation Project (Win Win).

Chung said the opening of the new gym was a desire to see football in Fiji developed and grew.

“We have seen from the results of the Fiji national teams have achieved for the past few years,” he said.

He said there were plenty of talents to be found in Fiji.

“With the new facilities in place the Fiji FA technical department had a greater capacity to build on these foundations and develop strong competitive players and teams.”

Chung said Fiji FA was taking one step further, not only Fiji FA catering to the football community but to the community as a whole.

“This gymnasium will serve wide range of people from athletics and people recovering from injuries.”

Fiji Football Association (FFA) president Rajesh Patel said at the national football academy they definitely lacked equipment and a fitness center that they needed for the players to excel.

“It is something that a player when he/she grows up and wants to become a professional player he/she needs to know his/her strength and conditioning is in line with the skills of football that he/she develops.”
