The original prize money for the championships was K22,000 given by major sponsor, PNG Power. But this increased by another K10,000 thanks to the support from State Enterprises Minister and Member for Hagen Open, William Duma. President of the PNG Softball Federation, Ralph Tarasomo explained the break up of the prize money this morning.
First place: K7,000, Second place: K5,000, Third place: K2,500 and Fourth place: K1,500.
He said the break up amount for the different placings is the same for both the men's and women's divisions.
The finals are underway now.
