“It is going to be an exciting weekend for football fans in the southern division as they will wit­ness a good 90-minute of football matches,” Yusuf said.

“There is a equal distribution of district reps in all the teams. I am glad the 90-minute football has started and it’s here to stay.

“However, hopefully next year we are looking at having this tourna­ment organized so teams can have time to prepare.

“We will also look at moving for­ward the 2019 pre-season transfer window from September to August which will allow movement play­ers to take place.

“ The Fiji FA has extended part­nership with Vodafone Fiji for the next 5 years and our aim is to in­vest more money into this compe­tition so teams from Vanua Levu can come over and compete. And we are grateful to Vodafone for this initiative.”
