Mt Hagen seven-a-side soccer tourney head to finals


MT Hagen Soccer Association is hosting its seven-a-side pre-season competition with 28 teams participating in men’s and women’s divisions.
Association president and former Hekari United midfielder Samuel Kini told The National yesterday that the competition, which kicked off last week, would head into the finals next week.
“We have two pools in the respective divisions, the men’s and women’s,” Kini said.
“Each pool has 14 teams. All teams will be playing each other once.
“We are running the pre-season competition just to prepare all teams for our season which kicks off next month.
“All teams are from Mt Hagen, starting from Kagamuga to town.”
Kini said the competition needed sponsors.
“For the pre-season, the prize monies will come from the team registration fees,” he said.
“We are reaching out to a number of business houses in Mt Hagen to sponsor the season.
“But if there are no sponsors, we’ll still run the competition with whatever resources we have.”
