After lifting the Inter-District Championship trophy this weekend, Navua is looking ahead making plans for 2020 season after a unforgettable 2019.
Navua was promoted to 2020 Vodafone Premier League after being champions of 2019 Vodafone Senior League with an incredible campaign winning all their 16 matches. Taking Inter-District Championship into consideration, they won 21 of 22 official games in this year.
Navua players also won some awards in this season, speacially in Inter-District Championship. Seveci Rokotakala received the IDC best player award while Alfred Ali was named the Final MVP. Thomas Dunn was also awarded with the “Best Newcomer” award. Some other players had great performance this season scoring many goals between IDC and Senior League like Vineet Chand (14) and Sharad Kumar (12).
Even receiving these money prizes Navua still struggles financially and team management is quite worried about it. Melvin Nath, Navua’s official, said the team is looking for sponsorship so they can make a good 2020 season.
The sponsorships can be in cash, boots or training equipments. Interested people or companies can mail Melvin Nath through the e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or their Facebook page.
