PREFERENCE will be given to teams outside the National Capital District for the remaining four spots in the 24-team Masta Mak-sponsored Easter Cup rugby challenge.
The president of NCD Suburban Sports Billy Yaki, who was tasked to run the competition, said he was calling on Tubuseria, Boera, Rigo or any team from Central province to take up the remaining spots.
He said the three-day tournament had already confirmed 20 teams with remaining four spot up for grabs.
Mr Yaki said the franchise owner of Masta Mak Rugby League Football club in the bemobile Cup competition, Kelly Aiyok had increased the funding from K25,000 announced during NCD Governor’s Cup last December to K50,000.
Yaki is appealing to teams to immediately contact him on 76042969 to register their interest.
He said Aiyok was initiating the Masta Mak Easter Cup rugby league challenge to market his bemobile team to Port Moresby.
“Importantly the residence of Port Moresby must appreciate that Masta Mak Rangers is a Port Moresby team and not from Enga,” he said.
The president said Aiyok want to impart this mentality into the heads of city residents that Civpac NCDC Vipers were the first team while the Rangers were the second team from the city.
Yaki urged all their teams to start preparing for this tournament.
He encouraged all senior and representative players to take major role in providing technical assistance and also take part in the tournament.
“If you are Vipers or Kumuls player living at Bomana, you can don the Bomana colours during the Easter Challenge.
“It’s an open invitation to all representative players to take part,” he said.
