The Goroka Soccer Association (GSA) in Eastern Highlands Province has called off its 2021 season proper following the prolonged delay in the resumption of the competition.
GSA President Richard Niningi said the season proper started in June and was into its’ second round when the venue was scheduled for the Goroka Show which was later disrupted.
The venue at National Sports Institute was later used for COVID 19 isolation and with the surging COVID 19 situation in the province, the competition was completely grounded.
Niningi said the situation is beyond their control therefore the sensible thing to do was for them to call off the season.
He further urged the competition member teams to practise the new normal and keep safe during this time.
