Rewa soccer wants full 90 minutes to be replayed

The Rewa Soccer Association has written to the Fiji Football Association saying their abandoned match against Nadi should be replayed for 90 minutes and not for whatever time that was remaining in the match today.

Nadi was leading 1-0 till half-time when the match was called off due to unplayable ground conditions at Subrail Park.

The Fiji FA has decided that only the second half of the semi final will be replayed tomorrow.

According to FIFA laws, an abandoned match is replayed unless the competition rules or organisers determine otherwise.

Rewa's President, Nazeel Buksh says Fiji FACT regulations do not stipulate that only the remaining minutes of the game should be replayed and the regulations are silent on this matter.

He adds previously in all tournaments and national soccer league, an abandoned match has been replayed for the full 90 minutes, a precedence set by Fiji FA.

We have contacted Fiji FA CEO Mohammed Yusuf who says he will comment tomorrow morning as he has not seen the email by Rewa FA.
