“We have done a lot of work in the park for the past two or three weeks and as of today, the grounds are not in 100% condition but it is playable. We had to do a lot of work on the field and also the main pavilions around the Subrail Park.”

He adds they are looking forward to hosting this tournament to the best of their abilities and says he’s grateful for the weather being in their favour.

The competition kicks-off at 12.30pm with Nadi playing Nadroga, Rewa faces Navua at 2:30pm, Lautoka meets Ba at 4.30pm while Labasa takes on Nasinu at 7pm.
