“We got franchise and then we’ve got Cup championship, the international events that they do attend. So, we had the Fijian Cup in November this year in Sigatoka and the repeat of that in the coming year. We would like to use that as a probably the last hit out for our athletes attending the Pacific Games in the Solomons.”

Mau says they have programs that focuses on certain competitions that have different officials monitoring the players involved.

The Pacific Games will be held in the Solomon Islands in December while the Nottingham Youth World Cup is scheduled for July.
