"It is a one-day competition and this is the time when the people come together," he said.
"Our aim is to develop our youths so that they can play for Fiji at the international level.
"We all are looking forward to the games.
"This competition is one of the oldest competitions which started way back in 1970s.
"We are also planning to introduce more new sports in the competition.
"We might include basketball and swimming next year. People can also come and watch the teams play."
