Ba, Labasa, Nadi and Suva have been selected by Fiji Football Association to participate in the annual event which will be held from November 20-24th, 2013 at Bill Mckinlay Park and is organised by NZ Fiji FA INC – an affiliate of Fiji FA-. #A total of ten teams will be participating in the four day-tournament. #Local sides Ba and Labasa have been grouped in Pool A with Queensland (Australia), Savusavu (NZ) and Nasinu (NZ). #Defending champion Nadi will face arch rival Suva, Sydney (Australia), Vatukoula (NZ) and Nadi (NZ).#The NZ Fiji FA INC is accommodating the four local sides. #Earlier this season the Fiji FA affiliate invited Ba for a two match friendly series against NZ clubs Auckland City and Waitakere United. #In July a veterans tournament was also organised by the NZ body played at Prince Charles Park in Nadi. #Pool A: #Ba (Fiji)#Labasa (Fiji)#Queensland (Australia)#Savusavu (NZ)#Nasinu (NZ)#Pool B:#Nadi (Fiji)#Suva (Fiji)#Sydney (Australia)#Vatukoula (NZ)#Nadi NZ#Not a picnic trip: Gurjit#The Suva football side is not taking the 2013 Pacific Cup to be held next month in New Zealand lightly. #The Pacific Cup will be played from November 20-24th, 2013 at the Bill Mckinlay Park.#Suva head coach Gurjit Singh says the Pacific Cup will be a competitive event which will provide a tough challenge for his young side. #Like any other quality side, Suva has buried the Courts Inter District Championship performance behind to be focused on the task ahead of them. # “We would like to do well in the Pacific Cup,” Singh said. #“The IDC has finished and the Pacific Cup is different all together and will be tougher then IDC. We are heading in as under dogs and though we are not strong as Ba, Nadi and Labasa but we will give our best at this tournament.”#“We are not going on a picnic trip and I want to see the players giving their best,” Singh said. #The former Navua coach who guided Suva to Vodafone Fiji FACT and Courts IDC victories in the 2012 season says the Pacific Cup will bring forward many positives for his side. #“This tournament will assist us in preparing for the new season and a good opportunity for our younger players like Jale Dreloa and Kolinio Sivoki to be exposed to this tough battle. It will also be good reward for the Suva players to travel to NZ after a tough season,” he said. #Suva has been seeded in Pool B with defending champion Nadi (Fiji), Sydney (Australia), Vatukoula (NZ) and Nadi (NZ).# Fiji FA MEDIA
