The Digicel Fiji Premier League round one match between Labasa and Rewa has been called off.

This decision comes in light of the adverse weather conditions currently impacting the country.

Fiji FA Operations Manager, Anushil Kumar, explains that they received advice from the Nausori Town Council regarding the closure of the Ratu Cakobau Park due to flooding and blockages in the vicinity.
