He said they have opened up the opportunity for more centres to participate be rescheduling the dates.
“So far we have received expression of interests from 12 associations,” he added.
He said from the Sepik region those that have confirmed are Ambunti, Vanimo and Passam Associations.
“We are expecting three more from the Sepik Provinces,” he added.
Others confirmed are Madang, Ramu, Sobirala from North Coast Madang, Wau, Morobe, Watut, Buang and Salamaua.
“We are also expecting more to come from the Huon, Markham and Finschhafen District’s as well,” Seske said.
Deadline for registration is Friday 4,06pm September 15.
“This will give enough time for the LOC to plan the game schedules,” he added.
The Tournament Director Shem Farrock is also making a special appeal to the associate members of Madang soccer association.
He wants to see all eight associates of the Madang Soccer Association who took part in last year’s tournament to all attend the tournament in Lae.
“It won’t be good for those others taking part when the Madang Association was the host last year, which saw the Sepik’s and Morobe centres meeting their costs to Madang.
“It must be fair to travel to other outside associations and take part and as I am the chairman of regional body I will keep records of all associates who follow the tournament rounds and take part in the region,” added Farrock.
