Fijian Soccer League's All-Stars will participate in the Pacific Cup in 2015.Fijian Soccer League's All-Stars will participate in the Pacific Cup in 2015.Pacific Cup chairman Mohammed Yusuf admitted that the Fijian Soccer League of Greater Vancouver hasconfirmed for the 2015 Pacific Cup in New Zealand.

He told Radio S1 Dhamaka's Umran Ali the leagues' All-Stars team will debut in the high intensity fixture.

"The Fijian League All-Stars' team has confirmed participation for the 2015 Pacific Cup", he said.

Yusuf said the leagues request was accepted following Vancouver Nadi's withdrawal at the start of the year.

"Nadi was included on the behest of Sikandar Khan, a long-time soccer administrator and an ardent fan of the Pacific Cup."Now that Nadi has decided not to participate, Fijian league took the opportunity to represent".

But last Friday a strange text message surfaced, it wasfrom some irate Surrey-rite claiming an earlier article about the Pacific Cup was untrue and wanted his side of thestory told.

Sportsone later established the sender as an executive of the FSLGV.

Yusuf, on questions admitted that thesaid executive isinfacthiscontact.

Meanwhile, the Nadi Football Association of British Columbia has the copied email conversations between Yusuf and this executive and the leagues formal request to participatein the Pacific Cup, all this whenNadi had already secured a spot based on its laurels.

A top Premier League team manager laughed off the Pacific Cup campaign, said the FSLGV needs to first rewrite its constitutions so the garnered funds are usedfor the local competitions and the Pacific Cup.

Attempts to get a comment from Nadraj Nair, the interim president of the FSLGV were futile.
