After losing to Navua in the first day of 2020 Inter-District Championship, Labasa bounced back incredibly to clinch the tournament’s title for the second straight year by beating Lautoka in the final clash by 2-1.
Labasa’s success in the tournament can be credited to their defensive system as they suffered only three goals in five matches. Led by goalkeeper and team captain Akuila Mateisuva, the Babasiga Lions did not let their opponents attack easily.

Mateisuva deservedly won the Inter-District Championship’s Golden Glove Award – an award given to the best goalkeeper in the tournament. The 28-year-old player proved himself during the tournament and Fiji National Team’s head coach Flemming Serritslev should think about calling him to represent Fiji internationally.
Oceania Football Center congratulate Akuila Mateisuva for this accomplishment. You can check more information about 2020 Inter-District Championship by clicking here.
