The 2017 Vodafone Fiji FACT sees a Suva side that has on paper a very strong and talented set of players. With the set of new and energetic officials and under the guidance of coach Naithan Shivam the Capital City boys are capable of winning this year’s title after going down against Nadi in last year’s final.
They are improved side and their recent Vodafone Premier League wins point a different outing for the Capital City at the 2017 Vodafone Fiji FACT.
They have the pace and strike force in their upfront to match their hard men back line. Last year’s losing finalist and 2012 champions, they will be out to avenge their narrow loss to Nadi. Suva has big names and an excellent sponsorship base management team.
They are in the tricky pool. The opening match against newcomers Rakiraki at Ratu Cakobau Park is potentially an obstacle between them and an ideal start to the tournament. Suva has the players and form to be among favorites for the final four and the potential to another Vodafone Fiji FACT title to their recent swag of tournament title.
Suva has only won the Fiji FACT title twice which was in 1995 and 2012.
