The semifinals and final will be held at Lawaqa Park on the 4th and 5th of June.

Fiji FA Chief Executive Mohammed Yusuf says Fiji FACT is one of the most anticipated tournaments and they couldn’t have it last year due to the second wave of COVID-19 in Fiji.

This year’s tournament will feature a total of 10 teams which will be played over seven match days.

He adds it’s also a special moment for major sponsor Digicel as it will be the first major tournament since their new sponsorship signing last year.

The pool draws will be held this Friday at the Fiji FA Headquarters in Vatuwaqa.

Meanwhile, only two Digicel Premier League games will be held this week with Lautoka hosting Nadi at 7:30pm tomorrow before the Sugar City side travels to face

Labasa at 1:30pm on Saturday at Subrail Park.
