By Sunil Sharma
 
The new Fiji Football Association headquarters in Vatuwaqa was officially opened this evening by Oceania Football Confederation president David Chung.

In his address Chung said that FIFA and OFC were proud of the “tremendous achievements” by Fiji Football.

“Today marks another mile achievement for Fiji Football with this project and in particular in the capital city of Suva.

“This project will benefit everybody in this country especially those who love football,” Chung said.

He applauded FFA’s for ensuring that the project was completed on time.

Chung said with the new facility, Fiji have a chance to lift their game on the international arena.

“Definitely with the technical and the new system implemented, no doubt Fiji have the potential to go up another level in football.”

Fiji FA was given a grant of USD$450,000 by FIFA with the help OFC to complete the project.

Football House also took out a loan with the Fiji Development Bank to furnish the newly built HQ.
