Sports venues needed


THE Port Moresby Schools Football Association has come through challenging times in recent years due to the unavailability of venues, vicechairman Wesley Waiwai says.
Regardless he is still delighted to see that the interest for schools soccer is alive and well in the nation’s capital, he told The National this week.
“Last year because of limited facilities we started the competition playing indoor soccer, but this year with the availability of suitable facilities we have brought games outdoors.
“The competition has grown with the number of schools taking part in the different age categories. They start at Under16 all the way to U18, with 15 schools in taking part,” Waiwai said
Due to the number of schools fielding teams in this year’s competition and the limited venues available, organisers decided to award the division championship to the teams with the highest point aggregate. Only the U16 boys were able to play a grand final due to the manageable number of teams.
