Lupari calls for overhaul of the leadership of PNGFA

“Since I have been involved in the soccer administration in the country over last 3 years, I saw soccer has a tremendous potential to advance but sadly this cannot be achieved because of the manner in which Soccer is administered by the PNGFA.

The administration of soccer is serially monopolized; it is run by select group of individuals. Every aspects of the soccer administration is managed and controlled by few people. These people do not want to accept changes, and they do everything within their power to stop changes, said Lupari.
