Prime Minister Voreqe Baini­marama has given his assur­ance to the football frater­nity that Government will always back the sport.

Speaking at the opening of the 2018 Courts Inter-District Cham­pionship, Bainimarama acknowl­edged the Fijian women for being ranked second in the Oceania re­gion.

He also urged fans who turned up in numbers at the ANZ Stadium the importance of unity.

“Sports success depends on team work. Unity is our nation greatest strength, we must work together to put scores on the board,” he said.

“I know many people say that Fiii is a rugby nation but we are clearly football nation as well.”

“ This is a historic year for IDC as this tournament enters its 80th year,”
