Fiji Football Association set a partnership with Multi-Cultural Sports Association, Victoria Football and Frankston Pines FC to send young Fijian players to Australia.
It was an initiative made by Voreqe Bainimarama (Fijian prime minister) during a visit to Australia back in October. This initiative is backed by DFAT (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) in making arrangements for the players to go to Australia.
This partnership has the aim of preparing young Fijian players for future in order to qualify for 2026 FIFA World Cup. Some players like Kishan Sami, Alzaar Alam, Savenaca Baledrokadroka, Shivam Naidu and Tito Vodowaqa will probably go to Australia to play for Frankston Pines in State League Division 3. This club is based in Frankston North, a suburb from Melbourne.
They will be given contracts and they will play and work there in Australia. Oceania Football Center would like to congratulate all involved parts for the initiative.
