Jacks Nadi continues to lead the Fiji Sun / GP Batteries national league series with 31 points out of 14 games played so far.
While all league matches will be put on hold until the Vodafone Fiji FACT is over, the green machines in their last outing thrashed minnows Tavua 5-0 at Govind Park in Ba on Saturday, May 25.
The side will be soon going into camp in preparation for the Vodafone Fiji FACT which Nadi will be hosting at Prince Charles Park from June 21 after round one games are played in Suva from June 15 ? 16.
Ba still maintains the second spot in the league ladder with 27 points but have a three game advantage having played only 11 matches so far due to their Oceania League commitment earlier on.
The capital side Suva is now enjoying the third spot after thrashing Labasa 5-2 at the ANZ National Stadium on Sunday, May 26 and have 25 points so far.
Meanwhile for the first time the Vodafone Fiji FACT will have eight teams participating in the tournament.
?It will be 90-minute soccer and for the first time eight teams will be participating in the Vodafone Fiji Fact,? Fiji FA president Rajesh Patel had earlier stated.
