THE Besta FA Cup Momase Region intends to take the lead in bringing the game to rural areas and develop it from the ward level up.
The annual PNG Football Association-sanctioned Besta FA Cup soccer competition is a perfect platform to draw and promote the pool of talent available, especially from rural parts of the country apart from the known players in the major centres.
Momase Besta FA Cup coordinator Shem Farrock said this was what the PNGFA ought to do in order to ensure that people took ownership of the game.
“The people own the game; PNGFA and people like us are only here to help promote it and take it to the lowest possible level — from wards to LLGs and districts,” Peka said.
“We are opening up the rural areas in Momase and want the same done in the other regions of the country.”
In living up to that, organisers and hosts of this year’s Momase leg of the Besta FA Cup have invited teams from the districts from West Sepik, East Sepik and Madang to next month challenge.
Some teams have confirmed their entrants to the annual competition but some have yet to submit their names.
Morobe Football Association will play host to the five day tournament from September 12-16 at PNGFA Academy in Lae, 11 mile.
Farrock urged member associations and associate members to pay their nomination and players registration fees by deposit into the BSP Lae Top Town account # 7010022288.
The account name is Morobe Football Association.
