‘Thank you for your support

President’s Desk

Greetings to all

Firstly, I would like to welcome back the ardent readers of our Goal Fiji publications as we resume our weekly newspaper from this week, coinciding with the resumption of football in the country last week.

In respect to the strict covid-19 measures in place and we at Fiji Football Association showing our support in fighting this deadly virus, we were the first sporting body in the country to introduce the No Jab, No Play policy, and last weekend, football was the first sport to be played at a competitive level with the Digicel Premier League to begin with.

Three exciting matches were played over the weekend and the fans also came out in numbers to enjoy a footballing Sunday.

At this juncture, I would like to thank the players, officials, fans and every stakeholder who complied with our protocols and ensured we had a smooth return to play. However, there were fans who were denied entry at the gate because of not following the protocols put in place.

We also had Digicel Beach Soccer Championship for the Lami region last weekend and it was yet another exciting two-day event. I would like to thank Digicel CEO, Farid Mohammed, for availing himself at the presentation ceremony. Beach Soccer is at a revival phase and we this is also an area that we will look into to ensure it continues to grow.

Another exciting round of DPL will continue this weekend with the resumption of Digicel Women’s Super League and Digicel Senior League.
