FBC Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says they had to abide by the Drua’s rights to not air the match live, because ticket sales were slow.

“We’ve got the go ahead and they are allowing us now to put on live, which is great news for everyone, for the fans, especially to everyone and the common Fijian who can’t all come to Suva to watch the game and pay the tickets that is being sold.”
