Excitement is building after the torch for the country’s biggest football tournament, the Courts Inter District Competition (IDC) was ferried across Viti Levu in the lead up to the showdown this weekend in Suva.

Teams in the Western Division had a chance to showcase the Courts IDC torch which was marched by players and coaching staff through each town from Sigatoka to Ba yesterday.

Ba Football Coach Imdad Ali said the IDC was the biggest tournament in the country compared to other soccer competitions.

“All of the teams have been preparing well and so are we,” he said.

“It’s a privilege to host the IDC torch today and we are happy that it came to Ba so that we can start hyping up our fans and supporters for the upcoming tournament.

“The players are excited and very much looking forward to our first match this weekend.”
