The PNG Football Association is embarking on strategies to improve football in the country.
In an interview with EMTV Sports, PNGFA General Secretary, Dimirit Mileng, said the growth of football in the country remains the priority.
The PNG Football Association has in recent months been bogged down by a series of events that has made working to plan forward more difficult but still maintain a positive outlook for the future.
While the saga over last December’s General Conngress brought with it unwanted attention to the organisation, General Secretary Dimirit Mileng believes the association is now making strides for further improvement of football.
Plans are in place for the expansion of Football across the country, and this is the type of focus that Mileng believes will be beneficial for the code in the long run.
With the conclusion of the National Soccer League two weeks ago, the next project on the cards for PNGFA is the BESTA Cup – the inter-association competition that pits all of the association members against each other.
Following that – the PNG Games, scheduled for November. All in all, the belief is that with support from the various stakeholders across the country, that football will continue to grow in Papua New Guinea.
