Momase Besta Regional qualifiers next month

Plans are well underway to host the Momase Besta Regional qualifiers in Madang next month.

The Besta qualifiers is an annual tournament that is run in the Momase region to identify the top male and female member associations to represent Momase in the Besta PNG Football Association (PNGFA) Member Associations finals in Lae in November this year.

The qualifiers will be be held in Madang at Laiwaden oval from August, 10-14.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) is putting together plans for the tournament with a fundraising drive to host the tournament. 

Chairman of the LOC, John Marapal said he will be writing to the Madang Governor Jim Kas to support the tournament. 

“As hosts of the tournament we are excited about the prospect of hosting the event. We know that soccer plays an important role in reducing social issues in the community but more so it exposes raw talent,” said Marapal. 

Marapal also called on participants to contact him and his organising committee to register their interest in participating in the tournament. 

Interested teams can contact John Marapal on 72160785 or email him on or Siegfried Beschel on email
