The PNG Association has suspended all its football activities for a period of 30 days due to the coronavirus threat.
Following ongoing consultation and collaboration with the President John Kapi Natto with his Executive Committee members and the NSL Board earlier resolved to immediately suspend all PNGFA activities and competitions as effective immediately.
The postponement includes all Kumul Petroleum National Soccer League matches, said PNGFA general secretary Dimirit Mileng.
“It is a difficult decision for our organization but it is important that we do this in the interest of the health of all our soccer players including our fans.”
“The wellbeing of our players, coaches, referees, volunteers, supporters and the wider football community is our top priority. And, while this will be disappointing for many, postponing Kumul Petroleum National Soccer League for the time being is in everyone’s best interests.”
“Given the situation with COVID-19 is constantly changing we continue to ask everyone involved in Kumul Petroleum National Soccer League to support one another and follow NDOH/WHO guidelines.”
