Season proper for the Port Moresby Australian Football League (AFL) competition will kick off this Saturday 24th July, but it will not have all the teams participating.
President of the Port Moresby AFL Association, Mr. Douglas Lai, confirmed that two teams will not be playing this weekend. The teams are, the North Waigani Tigers and the Gerehu Magpies. This is because they are yet to confirm the number of players in their teams respectively, before confirming their participation in the 2021 season competition.
A schedule for this weekend’s games has been put together and all the matches will take place at the Colts Oval. A fully completed schedule for the season will be put out next week following this weekend’s games.
Meanwhile, the Port Moresby AFL Women’s competition is expected to start in a couple of weeks after the start of the men’s competition.
“A complete schedule for the women’s competition will be confirmed this week and hopefully the competition will start after two weeks,” said President Douglas Lai.
The president also confirmed that only four teams will be participating in this year’s women’s competition.
