Women’s IDC Pool Drawn

The 2018 Vodafone Women’s Inter District Championship pool were drawn yesterday at Fiji FA Headquarters in Vatuwaqa.
Seven-time champion Ba was picked in Pool A with Tailevu Naitasiri, Navua and Nadi while 5-time champion Suva heads Pool B with Labasa, Rewa and Tavua.
Fiji FA vice president and women’s football director Susan Wise said the Vodafone Women’s Inter District Championship (IDC) has been revived after a lapse of three years and a total of 8 teams will feature in this year’s edition which will be played at the Fiji FA Regional Academy in Suva.
“We are happy to revive the competition as it will give the young and upcoming women footballers a good platform to display their talent and get recognized by the national coaching panel, “said Wise.
She said the 8 teams were selected on merit and one of the criteria they used was the ranking of the teams in the Women’s Senior League.
“2018 was a historic year for women football in Fiji as we participated in the OFC Nations Cup after a lapse of 30 years and the girls did wonders by reaching the final and winning silver medal for the country.”
“We have won Bronze twice and a Silver medal in the last Pacific Games but our aim this year is to win Gold and our preparations have already begun and this IDC will give the coaches an opportunity to see more players in action.”
Vodafone Fiji Sponsorship Manager Adriu Vakarau said the company was proud to be associated with the development of women’s football and would support Fiji FA in all its activities.
“We congratulate our girls for the wonderful achievement last year and we are confident that they will go one step ahead this year and do better in all their competitions. Their aim is to win gold in the Pacific Games and we will support them in every way possible.”
The group stages of the Vodafone Women’s IDC will be played from January 25-27 and the finals will be played the following weekend.
