Six District level players suspended by FFA

October 23, 2017 4:30 pm

Six district level players have been suspended by the Football Association after the Courts Inter District Championship earlier this month.

The players were tested positive during the Anti-Drug test at the tournament.

Fiji FA Chief Executive, Mohammed Yusuf says, players who don’t comply with the anti-drug policy will be severely dealt with by the Association.

This players may not have a second chance. They will appear before the BOC (Board of Control) committee on the 18th of November when we have our meeting in Suva. They will have to come out and explain why it happened and what they want to do in future. If the board is not satisfied that they can rehabilitate then they can count themselves out of football.

Ninety players were tested during the five day tournament.

Meanwhile, the national football side will play Kyrgyzstan in Malaysia on the 10th of this month.

The national side will then host Estonia on the 19th of November at Suva’s ANZ Stadium.
