Tavua soccer team’s former coach, Saroj Kumar will coach Suva in the Vodafone Fiji FACT.
Kumar led Tavua for a number of seasons and also brought the team back into the Premier competition in 2017.
Under Kumar’s guidance, Tavua also shocked teams like Nadi and Lautoka in the 2017 IDC where both these top teams failed to beat Tavua in the group stages.
Suva which last won the Fiji FACT in 2012 through Nathan Shivam’s winning goal will face Labasa at 3.30pm next Friday at Churchill Park.
In other matches on Day 1, Rewa will face Nasinu, Tavua will play Lautoka while Nadi will take on Ba.
