The Alfaz Ali-coached Nadi side will be in full force to end their winless jinx in the Digicel Muslim Inter- District Championship 2021 at the Prince Charles Park, Nadi this weekend.

The tournament is organised by the Fiji Muslim Sports Association.

Nadi last won the title in 2010 while Ba has featured in the last straight six finals.

The hosts have included Nadi district midfielder William Valentine, Mohamed Salmeen, Shafim Buksh, veteran goalkeeper Mohammed (Waisiki Batina) Begg, Mohammed Aryan and Shahil Valentine.

Ali said being the top seed in Pool D alongside with Ba, Suva, and Maro is a tough draw.

“Every game is a final for us,” he said.

“The team will be out to end our winless form since 2010 and we have a strong side. We were runners up for the last six years.”

Defending champions Maigania (Nadi) leads Pool A alongside Makoi, Varavu (Ba), and Sabeto (Nadi).

Organising committee chairman Javed Ahmad

said they have secured the sponsorship of Digicel Fiji.

“We are looking forward to a successful and competitive event with Digicel on board,” he said.

The tournament kicks off tomorrow with the opening round at 7pm with  Maigania vs  Sabeto at Price Charles Park, Nadi while Rewa hosts Valelevu at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nausori.

The tournament takes a break on Thursday and resumes on Friday with the finals on Sunday.
