Lautoka football fans will get a chance to watch their 2018 Vodafone Premier League champion play New Zealand champions Team Wellington at Churchill Park.

The two sides clash next Friday at 7pm on Sunday at 3pm.

The Blues will use the game as a build-up to the Champion vs Champion against Labasa and the O-League competition which begins on February 25.

Lautoka will travel to Labasa and play the first CVC round on January 6 and the host the Babasiga Lions on January 12.

Lautoka Football president Abdul Kadar aims to take the Blues to greater heights.

“We had a good build-up during the Pacific Cup and although bowing out in the semifinal, we knew that we held our measure against any side in that competition,”he said.

“I was so happy with our performance at the Pacific Cup and the build-ups are important as it gets us to gauge our strengths and iron out our weaknesses.

“Our boys are really playing well and I am happy.

“We are focused and as such I have asked the team to train through the festive season as we want to be as best prepared as possible.”

Kadar said the admission is $10 flat for the grandstand and embankment and children under 12 free.

Team Wellington was here in 2015 to contest the Oceania Champions League Final, where they lost on penalties to Auckland City.

The past few weeks have been very hectic for Team Wellington in the ISPS Handa Premiership.
