Work at PNG Football Stadiums in full swing

Work at Bava Park and the PNG Football Stadium is at full steam towards completion by the October end deadline.


PNG Sports Foundation Executive Director Peter Tsiamalili Jnr made this very clear during a tour of training and match venues currently under preparations for the FIFA Under 20 Womens World Cup.
The tour was with members of the Infrastructure Project Steering Committee (IPSC) as part of its weekly meet, and which Tsiamalili chairs.

The IPSC comprises of key technical officials from the Department of Treasury, Department of Finance, Department of National Planning, Central Supply Tenders Board (CSTB), PNG Power, Eda Ranu, PNG Sports Foundation (PNGSF), PNGSF Contractors and the FIFA Local Organising Committee.
This weekly meet is to ensure that the required support committed by the respective government agencies and contractors in areas of construction and refurbishment of the stadiums as well as upgrading of fields at all training venues are implemented.
"The Departments of Finance, Treasury and Planning have been tremendous in their hands-on support for this world event so far.

At this stage, the need for the full draw down of funds from the National Government is crucial. This will ensure that we meet our deadline in 30 days and get our games over the line", Tsiamalili said.
He additionally thanked the National Government for its commitment and ongoing support.
Tsiamalili also extended his appreciation to the IPSC for its commitment and dedication.
"The collective efforts by the key technical officials from the National Government, SOEs and contractors has continuously given great assurance that PNG is ready to host the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup 2016.
Teams arrive in the first week of November.
