The competition was launched at Vodafone Fiji Headquarters in Tamavua yesterday with the mobile company contributing $30,000 to organizers.
National FUTSAL coach, Intaz Khan says the tournament is a selection ground for the national team to compete in the Oceania Futsal Championship early next year.
“While this league is on, on September 29th and 30th, we are touching Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka and Ba for Western trials. On the 5th of September, we will be moving to Labasa. Because the OFC tournament is in February, we want to name the team by 1st December.”
The Vodafone FUTSAL Championship will begin tomorrow with the Southern Zone and will be followed by the western and northern zones later this month.
