New Dates, Venue For Cvc

The Fiji Football Association has rescheduled its calen­dar for 2021.

Chief executive officer Moham­med Yusuf said considering the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Yasa and TC Ana, Fiji FA Board has decided to move the competi­tion backward.

“The Pillay Garments Champion vs Champion two-match series will now be played at the ANZ Stadium in Suva with the first leg on February 19 and second leg on February 21,” said Yusuf.

“Subrail Park has sustained massive damages as well as Ratu Cakobau Park, so we have to move both legs to Suva.”

Yusuf said this would allow the Labasa football family to recover from the recent flooding.

“Three weeks will give Labasa to recover and prepare for the cham­pionship,” said Yusuf.

Yusuf confirmed the Vodafone Premier League (VPL) would start later this month.

“The VPL will start on Saturday, February 27 between Ba and La­basa and on Sunday at Churchill Park, Lautoka will host Navua, Nadroga will face Nadi at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka while Rewa is scheduled to host Suva,” said Yu­suf.

The Women’s Super League will kickoff the same weekend.

“The Women’s Super League will be played as curtain raisers at some of the VPL match venues.”

The launching of the Women’s Super League will be done on Sat­urday, February 20, in Suva.

Yusuf mentioned that the age group national league for boys and girls and women’s senior league would start in March.

“There will be no changes of the major tournament dates,” Yusuf confirmed. Fiji FA
