The National U23 trials which was planned for January 8-16 at the Fiji Football Association (Fiji FA) Academy in Ba will go ahead as scheduled.
This was confirmed by the Fiji FA chief executive officer Mohammed Yusuf considering the weather conditions in the western division of Viti Levu.
“Yes, the trials will be conducted as per our initial schedule since the weather is getting fine in the western division,” Yusuf said.
“We have arranged for the transportation of players and once again the players are advised to report to our headquarters in Vatuwaqa before 6am on Tuesday as the bus will leave for Ba via Queens highway.”
Yusuf said they have received a massive response from both local and overseas players interested to come for the trials.
“About 70 players have shown their interest to come for the trials and this includes eight players from overseas.
“Now it is all upon them to give their best and impress the national coach in order to make it to the Fiji U23 squad.”
