Preparations are underway for Papua New Guinea to host the Melanesian Basketball Cup.
And efforts to ensure PNG host a successful event are being realised through sponsorship.
Paradise Beverages cemented their commitment as gold sponsor with a whopping K270,000 cheque.
EMTV is the official broadcaster of the 4-day tournament which will start on the 27th of this month.
The Melanesian Basketball Championship will see Papua New Guinea’s neighboring island countries Fiji, New Caledonia and Solomon Islands participate in a 4-day tournament from the 27th to 30th of this month.
The tournament of this magnitude puts a strain on the event organisers to best coordinate, facilitate and of course the financial difficulties. However, PNG Basketball Federation was fortunate to secure a major sponsorship package of K270,000, courtesy of Paradise Beverages.
The trophy for the Melanesian Cup Championship was unveiled today, the marking on the trophies baring unique design and flags of the participating nations.
The event adds to PNG’s record of successfully hosting international tournaments and EMTV as the broadcaster.
