Proposed Football Federation Of Papua New Guinea Made Known

Share the News

The proposed Football Federation of Papua New Guinea is looking at a more inclusive program involving more provinces and associations throughout the country.

This was made known in a media conference yesterday with its head, John Kapi Natto.

Despite statements by National Soccer League competition manager, Simon Koima, on Monday that dialogue would remain open, the FFPNG leader has said, the time for change has come.

The announcement by Kapi Natto to an extent solidifies his resolve for a separate direction from the one that is in place by the PNG Football Association, and is one that he has seriously considered, taking into account the type of support that he has already garnered from various members throughout the nation.

Whilst media reports had stated earlier this week that an olive branch had been extended by the National Soccer League, Kapi Natto is adamant that the steps that he has taken, are for the benefit of football in PNG.

The proposed Football Federation of PNG is structured around regional bodies now taking control of their own affairs, and offers a far more democratic approach to their decision making process.

Almost 12 associations have expressed interest in joining FFPNG, and many of these have been disgruntled at the manner in which football has been dealt with over the years.
