ABOUT K400,000 will soon be made available to improve Kalabond field in Kokopo in preparation to host home games for both Gurias and the Hunters.
East New Britain provincial administrator Akuila Tubal said yesterday in Kokopo that funds would soon be available according to provincial government budget to extend and improve the “grave yard” Kalabond.
He said this was a way forward in encouraging and promoting the league in the country and especially the islands region.
Tubal said the provincial government has welcomed Hunters Queensland Cup home matches to be played at Kokopo and was pleased that Kokopo had been chosen to be the home of the South Pacific Brewery-sponsored side this year.
It is understood that the Hunters will be based in Kokopo and will use Kalabond field to host home games.
Tubal said this was also in line with promoting tourism in the province as the Queensland Cup would attract many visitors in the country and abroad especially Australia to flock to Kokopo for the home games.
He said the provincial government would ensure outstanding issues regarding Air Niugini’s Tokua-Cairns operation, Tokua airport, Kalabond field and the province itself were sorted out and improved to cater for the number of people planning to travel to Kokopo for the Agmark-sponsored Gurias’ Digicel Cup home games and Hunters.
