Chung, pictured, who is on the way back from a FIFA executives meeting, is heading to Auckland, New Zealand, to meet all stakeholders of the home Oceania soccer to kick-start the November earth moving works.
He said in an email in November he would bring the FIFA director development to Bougainville to get a briefing on building a technical training centre under the less privileged programme of FIFA funding.
Chung said he would meet Minister for National Planning and Alotau MP Charles Abel to discuss a futsal stadium for Alotau and facilities that in future could bid for a FIFA futsal tournament.

“These are my projects for the PNGFA,” Chung said. He said the profile of the PNGFA was growing like never before with several companies backing the game.
