The Ba Football Association received a major financial boost before the start of its 2022 Pacific Community Cup cam­paign.

Association finance director Zainal Ali received $10, 000 from All in One Restaurant director Sulendra Raju in Nadi yesterday.

Ali said this is a timely sponsorship from the Nadi based- restaurant.

“We thank them for the big spon­sorship,” he said.

“We are playing this tournament, basically, just to help Wow Kids get the revenue that the Fiji Football As­sociation promised to hand over.”

Ali said the tournament is also an opportunity to expose their players before the start of the new season.

Raju said the Pacific Cup was gen­erated in New Zealand and it was good to see that it is embraced by the Fijian football community.

“It is good to have this legacy carry on. This is a big boost for Ba football as I want to see them be very com­petitive,” he said.

“This Pacific Community Cup brings the people of Fijian heritage together and gives them an oppor­tunity to mingle around with every­one.”

Meanwhile, Ba is in Group A with AuFFI All-Stars, host Nadi, and USA All Stars.

The other Group A dubbed as the pool of death includes Suva, Labasa, defending champions Lautoka and NZFFI All Stars.

Meanwhile, 4R Ba FC will face Po­lice FC in the final of the Ba FA Lo­cal League this week.

This was after former champions 4R FC edged YCF 1-0 while Police FC beat Flying Arrows FC 2-0 in the semi-finals last weekend.
