The Chicken Express Nadogo football team was judged the Best Dressed Team in the Vanua Levu Muslim Inter District Championship at Subrail Park, Labasa on Saturday night.

Nadogo coach/player, Mohammed Khan said they are now looking forward to end the tournament on a high note.

“We would like to thank our sponsors, Chicken Express for their support,” Khan said.

“It was only a few minutes before the official opening when we received the new uniforms.”
Khan said during their first pool match against defending premier champions Taveuni they wore their old uniform.

“Although we were not fully prepared in terms of uniform we still managed to beat Taveuni by 1-0. Everything is going well and we hope that we can return home with the premier cup. The last time we won was in 2011.”
The main sponsors for the week-long event are Bank of Baroda, Vodafone Fiji, and Maatuk Motor Spares.

OFFICIAL OPENING

The tournament’s official opening was done on Saturday night by Bank of Baroda Labasa branch manager, Uday Singh.
Singh told the 24 teams from the 18 districts in the Northern Division that the important aspect of any game was the safety of players.
“So I urge all players to show that spirit of true sportsmanship,” Singh said.

“Bank of Baroda has been the major sponsor of this tournament since 2011 and I assure you that we will continue to provide sponsorship.

“Our bank is very much delighted with the support and contribution which this event and officials have been giving to us in the past. We hope the same will continue in future to enable us to increase our customer base so that I have a reason to request my bosses for a bigger amount of sponsorship in the future years to come.”

SPORTING PROJECT

Macuata Muslim League Fiji’s Hazeem Hussein says, funds raised from the event will go towards their community project. That is the construction of a sports complex similar to Subrail Park in Labasa.
Hussein said they have seen a piece of land in Namara and the cost of this three-year project would be $0.5 million.
