As it was previously reported, Lami FC will not play Vodafone Senior League – the second-tier of Fijian football – this year. However the true reason behind it was not clear as there were no reports about this issue.
According to reliable sources, Lami could not play the tournament due to lack of compliance with Fiji Football Association (FFA) regulations as no club matches were being held in the district. There are some rumours that Lami is not affiliated to FFA anymore just like Levuka and Vatukoula, but there is no official confirmation about it.
Lami finished 2019 Vodafone Senior League in the second position. Some key players of that team joined Navua for 2020 Vodafone Premier League season like Matthew Charittar, Taniela Rakariva and Vinal Prasad.
The 2020 Vodafone Senior League will have eleven team split in two zones: one zone with five teams and another zone with six teams. You can see more information about the upcoming Senior League season by clicking here.
