The Suva City Masters football team will fly to New Zealand tomorrow to compete at the International Vet­eran’s tournament at Bill McKinlay Park in Auckand.

The annual tournament is organised by the New Zealand Fiji Football Incorporat­ed and attracts top veterans from across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

Suva City Masters vice-president Amini­asi Bigitibau says the team will use the tournament as a platform to prepare for new veteran’s league season this year.

The team is made up of former district and national reps, including striker Ra­vuama Madigi and goalkeeper William Lasaqa.

“As of now, we’ve got about five pools of four. We haven’t got the fixtures yet but we are in pool C,” Bigitibau said.

“We are looking forward to a good run in Auckland against some very good teams and hopefully we can come back with a positive result.”

One of the team’s objectives this season is to promote health and wellness in the wider community,

“We would like to get more involved with the community so we can go forward to­gether,” the vice-president said

“One of the objectives of the association is promoting health and wellness in the fight against non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which is part of the Government initiative.”
