The National, Friday, April 29, 2011

PORT Moresby Soccer Association is likely to win observer status at the annual general meeting on May 14 as it make inroads to renew ties with the national body, the PNG Football Association.
To ensure this works, it is currently planning to get its competition off the ground and, also become a member of the PNGFA.
Acting general secretary John Mogi said PMSA were urging all stakeholders, especially the clubs and teams to pay up their affiliation and player registration fees.
He added that clubs with three teams or more and a maximum of 20 players were supposed to pay K3,000 while K1,500 would apply to clubs with two teams and a maximum of 20 players.
However, Mogi said the clubs should pay a minimum of K600 as first instalment to be eligible to vote.
The working committee will waive the 50% minimum fees as per the constitution clause 8 (d) due to time factor.
Any commitments made in the previous season will be honoured only if the secretariat is satisfied those clubs concerned had no outstanding debts with the PMSA.
Mogi said there were 34 clubs intending to participate this season and if majority of the clubs paid their registration the AGM would go ahead.
A notice will be circulated or an advertisement will be placed in the newspapers.
Any matters relating to PMSA should be directed to Mogi on 7381 8304 or 7645 4930 or addressed to PO Box 35, Waigani.
