Valebasoga are the favourites to win the Premier and Super Premier divisions in the Vanua Levu Muslim Football Inter-District Football Championship.

The 10-day tournament ends with the finals on Sunday.

Valebasoga is well supported by local and overseas companies and   have good player base.

Maroof Khan, who travelled from Australia to Labasa to show his support, is also the grandson of the co-founders of Valebasoga Sports Club.

He is accompanied by five overseas players and six players from Viti Levu to make up two teams.

“There are about 25 sponsors who helped prepare the team and they have high hopes that we will bring back the glory,” Khan said.

“Eleven years ago the Super Premier team won the tournament and the Premier team won it about seven years ago.

“We want to show the people of the north that if we are united we can move anything.

“Football and creating brotherhood with other teams is why we are here.”

Indoor Sporting Complex

Khan revealed they have been asking Government to help in funding so that they can set up a indoor multipurpose sports complex and a catering hall.

“The Valebasoga Muslim League in Labasa has a land available and we just need assistance as this is a $500,000 project,” Khan said.

“Once this will be up and running we can get the young people of the streets and get involved in meaningful activities.

“This will be the first indoor sporting complex in the North.”

Khan runs his own business in Sydney called the NSW Office Solutions and is the president of Labasa Australia Fiji Inc.
