Decision on semis venue delayed

Fiji Football Association has delayed its decision on the announcement of the venues of the two semifinals of the 2017 INKK Mobile Battle Of Giants to tomorrow.

Acting President Tarunesh Reddy said the Board of Control met today and decided to make an official announcement tomorrow after taking all factors into consideration.

He said they will look at all possible options before coming up with a decision and executives will work on logistics and check with bookings of respective grounds.

“We will make a decision that is in the best interest of the teams and the supporters and an official announcement will be made by midday tomorrow.”

He did not rule the possibility of having the semifinals at different venues.

“Yes we know that Nadi and Lautoka have qualified and host Labasa is also in the semifinal.  We are not saying at this stage that Labasa will host the semifinals and final because three other teams will have to return and come back here if we are to play the matches at Subrail Park.”

“Likewise there is a possibility that one game may be played in the West as two semifinalists are from there. We will look at all these factors before making a fair and just decision,” said Reddy.

The semifinals and final are scheduled to be played this weekend.
