The Fiji Football Association says it will defer the Fiji FACT tournament to a later date after the intended date clashed with that of the Oceania Athletics Championship at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva.

Fiji FA President Rajesh Patel had earlier confirmed the tournament would be held from May 31st to 2nd June with the finals on June 8th-9th.

However, Fiji FA has been forced to revise the dates as the venue is booked for the Oceania Athletics Championship between 31st May and 9th June.
