Today the grassroots will kick off the first week of round three in the 2021 Rarotonga Football Competition at CIFA Complex.

The Under 8 and Under 10 mix will play on field one, while the Under 6 mix will rest and await their matches in the coming weeks.

Playing their match on the CIFA bottom field will be the Under 12 mix.

After the grassroots matches, Avatiu and Nikao Sokattak Under 18 Men’s will take the field in what is sure to be a hard-fought battle.

The Avatiu side, who are currently fourth in standings will need to be on top of their game today because a win for them will not only cause a massive upset in the division, but also pull the team up two placings to second.

But the Nikao Sokattak are sure to hold their ground today as they have gone through 10 weeks of football holding on to their undefeated run and are hoping to maintain this in their bid to win the Round Cup trophy.

Both teams comprise capable players but with this being the last few weeks of the weekly competition, Avatiu is not a team to be underestimated, as we’ve seen in the past rounds, they are a club known for their shocking upsets.
