Player/coach Nasa Wangu thanked Pebble Ltd general manager Tony Dindillo for his timely assistance.
Blue Kumuls is one of the 12 clubs who will be taking part in the semi-professional competition at the local association level – Port Moresby soccer competition.
Wangu said they had used part of the money to pay for uniforms from the Philipines while the balance would go towards the administration of the club.
Blue Kumuls has three teams in Super League, Under-19 and the women’s first division.
Dindillo, who has a long association with football with University Inter FC in the 1980s when his uncles Allan and David donned the university colours.
He said he was happy to back the Blue Kumuls who came from nowhere to win the 2012 premier competition.
“It all started when I came to watch some football and I saw the Blue Kumul players in all sorts of uniform so I decided to help out where I could,” Dindillo said.
Blue Kumuls are one of the four new teams included in the Super League competition.
The other new teams are Hard Rock, Maclarence and Yarangs United joining Cosmos, Defence, Mungkas, Momase, PS Ruts, Rapatona, Uni Inter FC and Yamaros.
