April 8, 2015 12:36 am
The Tafea football club of Vanuatu is using the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam to motivate them for the upcoming Fiji Airways OFC Champions League.
The club is based in the Tafea province in the south of Vanuatu, one of the worst-hit during the category 5 cyclone.
Coach Moise Poida says the players have not been able to train for two weeks prior to departure as they have been helping out with the clean-up.
“After Cyclone Pam, we take everything positive for the team and the fans also. We will try to bring some happiness back home.”
Tafea takes on Hekari United from Papua New Guinea in their first match at 4:30pm on Sunday at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.
Meanwhile, the competition gets underway on Saturday in the capital, where Vodafone Suva takes on Auckland City at 4:30pm, while at 7pm, Amicale plays Western United.
In Ba on the same day, AS Pirae meets Lupe Ole Soaga at 4.30 at Govind Park and Ba clashes with Gaitcha at 7pm.
