Warriors will play will play Erakor Golden Star FC in their first match on February 12 followed by AS Lossi FC on February 13 before taking on AS Dragon in their final match on February 15.

Meanwhile, Warriors Head Coach Moses Toata confirmed to SunSPORTS yesterday the team would travel through Brisbane, Auckland, before making their way over to Pape’ete, Tahiti for their Group B campaign.

Despite satisfied with their 2-0 friendly match win over Marist FC yesterday, Toata said there are still areas they need to improve on before their first match against Erakor.

“The team will leave on Friday, traveling via Brisbane, Auckland and then to Tahiti.

We go for one week and have three games in that week which for me is a bit too much,” he said.

“But I will try my best with the little time we have before the competition kicks off to work on areas I think needs improvement.

“Just very small things but these things in football can be a problem and  can haunt you if not fixed,” Toata adds.
