The tournament was officially launched by the Fiji Police Force Western Divisional Manager for Community Policing (DMCP/W) Superintendent of Police (SP) Petero Tuinirarama.
SP Petero said sports is the best way to unite people for a worthy cause and has mentioned to organisers that the tournament will have the full support of the Police.

The Divisional Community Policing head thanked the organisers for allowing him to launch the tournament and has urged all young people in attendance to be prepared spiritually, physically and mentally.
Meanwhile Mr Naivalu said they had secured few sponsors expressing the vanua’s gratitude to the Fiji Police for their support to a worthy cause.
