7th Papua New Guinea Games

2017 PNG Games preparations on track

The Games will be held from March 18-April 1 and will bring together 23 provincial teams and 12,000 athletes and officials.

Sports Minister Justin Tkatchenko confirmed that 90 percent of the venues are complete, with preparations progressing well.

However, the only issue that is slowing the contractor down is the wet weather, Tkatchenko said, which plays a major role in the timing of the completion of the facilities.
