​Unified Football growing

Level 2 Unified Football Coach for Special Olympics PNG, Willie Vaira, said the 7-a-side competition that started two weeks ago has seen an increase in 14 teams this season.

“The interest has built up from last year starting with just six teams playing 5-a-side football.

“We now have teams from Chesire Homes, Red Cross, Hanuabada Day Care, Wardstrip and Sogeri Primary turning up at the Sir John Guise Stadium every Saturday to play.

“Unified Football is all about bringing people with intellectual disabilities and able people together in sports.
