Vunivau/Batinikama team have qualified for Champion versus Champion (CvC) playoffs after beating two other teams in the Northern Sangam Then India Valibar (TIV) at the Labasa Sangam College ground on Sunday.

Team coach Ravneel Pratap said, it was difficult for them to get the players together but they still managed to win the tournament.

Pratap dedicated the win to the players for their commitment.

“The players performed well and help us qualify,” he said.

Pratap said the competition was far from over, as they now focus on the CvC which would be held later this year in Nadi.

Sangam National vice-president for admin and policy Dipesh Gounder said due to the COVID-19 pandemic the TISI Sangam made the decision to call off the national convention which was to be held in Suva.

Gounder said there were seven zones and the winners would compete in the CvC.
