Fiji FACT semi-finals postponed due bad weather and pitch conditions

Finally, the Fiji Football Association made the obvious: they understood the terrible conditions of the pitch at Subrail Park and decided to postpone the matches of this Saturday to tomorrow. The match that was interrupted in the half-time between Nadi and Rewa will restart from the second half.

The muddy Subrail Park just turned even worse with the rain in Labasa. Fiji FA was determined to continue the games that’s why Rewa and Nadi started their game, but it lasted only 45 minutes. Nadi will restart tomorrow with their 1-0 safe thanks to an early goal scored by Vuniuci Tikomaimereke.

Fiji FA’s CEO Mohammed Yusuf will review the decision tomorrow; if the pitch conditions continue as it is – unplayable – the match might get postponed again. The tickets used today will also serve for tomorrow – good news for the supporters.

Apart of the second half of Nadi and Rewa, the another semi-final between Suva and Labasa is set to start just after the completion of the final part of Nadi-Rewa’s clash.
