The venues identified to host the games are Erima (Northeast electorate), Hohola and Gerehu (Northwest electorate), Kaugere (Moresby South), Kilakila (Motu-Koita) with the grand finals on Nov 21 at the Sir John Guise Stadium.

Meanwhile, the Hohola suburban volleyball and soccer competitions are nearing the finals.
