Nadroga awarded match forfeiture

Fiji Football Association has awarded full match points of the Nadroga vs Nasinu Premier Division fixture of the 2023 Courts Inter District Championship (IDC) to the Stallions.

This is after Nasinu fielded an ineligible player in their 0-0 draw yesterday.

Fiji FA Competitions Manager Amitesh Pal confirmed to FijiLive that Nasinu had fielded a player who received a red card in their leg 2 decider against Savusavu in Suva last month.

He said as per the regulation of Fiji FA, it is always the case that all red cards are carried over from one competition/division to another (Fiji FA Disciplinary Code) and Comet disciplinary functionalities are calibrated accordingly.

Pal said by fielding an ineligible player, Nasinu FC gained advantage over Nadroga FC and in fairness they tend to be compensated for the cause.

As a result, pursuant to article 24 of the Courts IDC 2023 Premier Division regulations, “Eligibility of players” Nasinu FC will forfeit the match in favor of Nadroga FC for breaching the competition regulations by fielding an ineligible player for the match against Nadroga yesterday.

The nil-all result of the match will be annulled and Nadroga FC will be awarded with a match forfeiture of 3 points and 3 goals.

Therefore, the result of the match will now be Nadroga 3 vs 0 Nasinu.
