$2.122m for Rio Olympics: Fiji FA

October 26, 2015 12:56 am

The Fiji Football Association needs $2.122 million to take the Vodafone Fiji Under 23 side to the Olympic Games next year.

Fiji FA Chief Executive, Bob Kumar says they have a tough task ahead to look for the money but the facilities handover by FIFA last week will help them to some extent.

“We will knock FIFA’s door and maybe Oceania’s door as well but we will do it as we go along.”

Fiji qualified for the Olympics after defeating Vanuatu 3-2 on penalty kicks in the final of the Oceania qualifier in July in Papua New Guinea.

The Olympics will be held in Rio, Brazil in August next year.
