Message from Fiji FA CEO

Welcome to the 2013 Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants (BOG).#I would like to welcome the sponsors Inkk Mobile and thank them for their continued support towards the Fiji Football Association (Fiji FA). #Without their support it would have been very difficult to organise a tournament of this nature. Fiji Football Association is thankful that Inkk Mobile has come to our aid. #BOG as many might not recall started in 1978 after Suva hosted the Inter District Championship and were in financial difficulties. They were to repay the guaranteed sum to Fiji Football and they decided that the only way to do this was to organise a tournament. # #The Suva Officials at that time looked at BOG as the event that would recover the shortfall they had. No doubt in 1978 they hosted the BOG and it was very successful.#Ever since 1978 BOG has been played every year.#The pool draws for the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants was held last month as the eight participating teams found out who they will face.#Defending champion Ba was seeded in Group A with Nadroga, Suva and Nadi. Group B consists of Labasa, Lautoka, Rewa and Navua.#Like the Vodafone Fiji FACT, the Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants will be played at two venues. The first two rounds will be played at Subrail Park in Labasa and the remainder of the event will then shift to Govind Park in Ba. #As per the Fiji FA board of control’s decision all matches will be played over 90 minutes. #Fiji FA would like to urge the fans to come out in numbers and lets support our district. To the team management and players please show the true spirit of sportsmanship and make football the winner at the end of the day. #
