Varman to feature for Suva City Masters

Fiji Football Association Referees Director Rakesh Varman will don the Suva City Masters jumper in the 2021 RC Manubhai/APCO Coatings Veterans Tournament which officially gets underway at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka on Friday.

The former FIFA badge holder and a current FIFA Referees Assessor said the tournament is another chance for the veteran players who left playing football years ago to make a strong comeback.

“This veteran’s tournament is not only for the former players but also officials and this is a good time frame for people to move out of their comfort zone and bounce back into sport they played years ago.”

“This is done for the well-being of the players so that they have a good health considering the NCD rate of Fiji. Fiji FA is organising this tournament to help those people who are at the high risk of non-communicable diseases like hypertension, obesity and diabetes.”

The 52-year-old said participating teams players will enjoy the sport and at the same time get to socialise with long lost friends.

“Football is there for the sake of enjoyment and meeting people whom we last met years ago. COVID-19 pandemic kept us away for long but now we are fortunate that such sport is allowing us to come together and make use of the opportunity given.”
