The number of schools that will participate in this year’s Coca-Cola Games has decreased when compared to 2019.

Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Association Secretary Vuli Waqa says in 2019 they had about 120 schools.

Waqa says no schools from Macuata Zone 1 will be taking part while only 6 schools from Macuata Zone 2 are expected to feature.

RKS and ACS are the defending champions of the boys and girls divisions respectively.

More than 2,500 athletes are expected to feature at the Coke Games that will be held from the 22nd to the 24th of this month at the ANZ Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Permanent Secretary for Health, Dr. James Fong says they have received the application from the organizers of the Coca-Cola Games to increase the seating capacity at the ANZ Stadium from 50% to 86%.

Dr.Fong says the application is under consideration however he cannot say when a decision is expected.

The committee made the application on Friday.
