The Fiji football team are reportedly entering the camp in early January at the Fiji Football Association academy in Ba.
The team is preparing for the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) qualifiers in March 2022.
Digicel-sponsored national team manager Anushil Kumar has confirmed the schedule for the Bula Boys training camp.
“The boys will enter the camp on January 10,” Kumar said.
“They will be in camp for three weeks.
“There might be a break for a week or two for the players at the end of training camp.
“It’s a busy schedule for the boys as the countdown to the all-important OFC qualifiers picks up.
“I thank the players, Fiji FA academy staff in Ba and the medical staff for doing a tremendous amount of work to ensure that the team has a safe and healthy environment for our training camps. “
The organization of the camp will be governed by “safe return to play” protocols as described by the competent authorities. “
Kumar said the Bula Boys will enter the camp again in mid-February without any breaks before flying to Qatar for the OFC 2022 qualifiers.
The current expanded squad of 28 would be downsized before the squad left for Qatar.
Meanwhile, the Bula Boys would face a five-game OFC test campaign in late March.
Fiji have group matches against New Caledonia, two-time OFC Nations Cup finalists, traditional rivals New Zealand, and 2016 continental runners-up Papua New Guinea.
The Digicel national football team will face New Caledonia on March 18, face New Zealand three days later and meet Papua New Guinea on March 24 to conclude their group matches.
Tahiti is the spearhead of Group A with Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Tonga or the Cook Islands.
Samoa and American Samoa had withdrawn from the competition.
The matches are said to be held in Qatar from March 14 to 30 due to COVID-19 limitations. || Bula boys
