Fiji Football Association president Rajesh Patel said this move is part of their build up to the 2015 Oceania Football Confederation U20 World Cup playoffs which will be held in New Zealand.
Patel confirmed that a South and a West based sides will be fielded.
“I’m pleased that the district associations agreed on the move and will back us in our campaign,” Patel said.
The Fiji FA president elaborated further.
“The South side will play the Southern based Super and Premier sides and the West would do the same in their zone. At the end of the day it will not affect the standings of other teams as points for matches against
these two sides will not be counted in the overall standings,” he said.
“Instead separate standings will be created for these two sides which will be totalled at the end of the season and initiatives which have been lined up will be given according to wins,” he added.
Patel said the Northern division will not be left out.
“We are trying to work on various plans of how best to accommodate a Northern U20 side. But if any player from Vanua Levu is interested to feature for either of the two sides he is welcome to do so.”
Imdad Ali will coach the Southern side while Lautoka coach Ravinesh Kumar is eyed for the Western U20.
