Ba to host Pacific Cup decider

Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar said criteria for the selection of the four best teams were set-up earlier this year.
“It was decided in one of our board meetings to set-up a criteria and a points system was done to choose the best teams for the Pacific Cup, “he said.
Kumar said our season starts during the Inter District Championship and the winner get 5 points while runners-up get 4 with the two semifinalists on 2 points each.
“The same applies in all our major tournaments except the National League, “added Kumar.
He indicated that in the National League- the winner gain 5 points, 2nd place get 4 points, third place 3 and fourth get 2 points.
“Looking at the points system Rewa top the point table with 12 points with Suva and Nadi both sit on 11 points and Lautoka and Ba are even with 6 points.
Kumar added that to get the fourth team the Fiji FA Board decided that Lautoka and Ba play and the winner qualifies as the fourth best team from Fiji.
“Both teams agreed to face each other and since Lautoka does not have a ground the match will played in Ba.”
This year the Pacific Cup will held in November at Bill McKinelly Park, the “Home of Fiji Soccer” in New Zealand.
With the inclusion of the American and the Canadian teams the event looks to be more promising. Home town favourites and defending champions NZFFI All Stars and the finalists AFFA All Stars have already booked their spot.
The other NZ and the Australian sides are yet to be confirmed to make a total of 10-team competition.
