Eight players now fail the drugs test at Fiji FACT – FBC News



There are now eight players who fail the drug test at the Vodafone Fiji FACT.

Mohammed Yusuf, director of the Fiji Football Association, says it is quite disappointing to have this number given their efforts to have a drug-free sport.

Yusuf adds that it is even worse if six of the eight come from the premier league.

“After round three the numbers have gone up to eight, we are disappointed, after that total there are six from the seniors. The board discussed this morning, we are entering into an educational program with the voice of athletes from FASANOC. A full team will visit all these areas and educate them about drug abuse. ”

The other two are senior team players participating in the President’s Cup competition.

This is the highest number of positive cases from a tournament this year.

One player failed the drug test in the first round and four more were positive after the second round on Wednesday at Subrail Park in Labasa.

However, after day three, the number has risen to eight.

Yusuf says they will now have to partner with FASANOC’s Voice of Athletes as another alternative to educate players about drug use.

FBC Sports has understood that three top players from the same team are in the southern division.

If a player is found to be a repeat offender, he will be banned for three years, while first offenders will be banned for three months.

Fiji FACT’s postponed semifinals and final will take place in Labasa next weekend, meaning there will be three more rounds of drug testing.
