Presidents Corner

Greetings to all#Farewell Lovneel#It came as a shock to learn of the sudden passing away of young footballer Lovneel Pratap. #Pratap, commonly known as “Peter” was one of the many talents that had come through the Fiji Football Association development programmes to break into the Super Premier division. #Over the years he played for various districts like Tavua, Nadi, Tailevu Naitasiri and finally settled with the Suva side. #He had proved himself on the field and by means was a champion. #Our prayers and blessings are with his family who will have to face this difficult period. #May god bless Lovneel…. And may his soul rest in peace. #Pacific Cup #The stage is set for the 2013 Pacific Cup which kicks off next week at Bill McKinley Park in New Zealand. #Defending champion Nadi, Labasa, Ba and Suva will be representing Fiji at the annual meeting competing with some sides from NZ and Australia. #I would like to see one of our sides win the Pacific Cup and I would like to wish them the best of luck. #Having said that it is important that the players go out to be good ambassadors of Fiji and promote our brand of football. #U20 #The 2014 season will be a crucial one for us and we focus on the next Oceania Football Confederation Under 20 World Cup playoffs. We have time on our hands and the technical department is working overtime in preparing a strong squad. #With NZ not being part of the playoffs we have a grand opportunity to qualify for our first FIFA World Cup. #It will not be an easy task as the other participating teams would be thinking the same as us. #It is important we set our platform this season from which we will work towards our ultimate aim of qualifying. # Fiji FA MEDIA # #
