JUST days after requesting for postponement of its Vodafone Premier League matches, the Ba team has filed a protest against Nadi after losing 1-3 last weekend at Prince Charles Park.

Mohammed Yusuf, the Fiji Football Association (Fiji FA) chief executive officer, confirmed the protest, stating Ba is challenging the registration process.

He said the protest would now be forwarded to the Fiji FA board.

"Yes, Ba has filed a protest for the match they lost against Nadi," Yusuf said.

"The protest is not really in respect of the match but procedural matters and the board will finalise this when they meet in early March.

"The protest is more so on registration. They are claiming that it was out of time that Nadi registered (late registration).

"Both parties will be called and Ba will present the case and Nadi will defend," he said.

Yusuf says efforts to clarify the matter with Ba football failed.

"Ba decided to protest in spite of us (Fiji FA) giving them the whole evidence and they still wanted to protest, so the board will decide," he said.

Meanwhile, no matches in the Premier League will be played this weekend. Fiji FA has postponed two rounds of competition because the transfer and registration window is open.

The season resumes from February 3, 2018. After the first round, defending champions, Lautoka notched the biggest win after toppling Tavua 5-1.
