The Ba Football side will battle Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League defending champions Team Wellington as they open their campaign next week.

Team manager Arvin Singh said they are not leaving any stones unturned as they countdown towards their first match.

Singh said the players had been serious during our training sessions as it will be a different level of football.

“The preparations have been going very well,” Singh said.

“From the league games (Vodafone Premier League) we played, our coaches have identified the areas to be ironed out and they are working on it.”

Ba has registered a young team with experienced reps of Avinesh Suwamy and Malakai Tiwa to be leading by example.

“We have our home-grown boys with only one import in the team.

“We have very experienced players like Avinesh Swamy and Malakai Tiwa who will be guiding the young players in the team.”

Ba is in group C together with hosts Erakor Golden Star from Vanuatu, defending champion Team Wellington and Kiwi FC from Samoa.

Ba 23-member squad: Misiwani Nairube, Avinesh Suwamy, Shazil Ali, Manasa Nawakula, Sitiveni Cavuilagi, Simione Nabenu, Ratu Dau, Darold Kakasi, Abbu Zahid, Savenaca Nakalevu, Ilimotama Jese, Kishan Sami, Malakai Rakula, Sakaraia Naisua, Saula Waqa, Malakai Tiwa, Narend Rao, Sanaila Waqanicakau, Kalaveti Sivoi, Amena Bolaitamana, Atunaisa Naucukidi, Josaia Ratu, Kini Madigi.
