The development of the proposed new stadium for the Australian Football League (ALF) sporting code in Papua New Guinea (PNG) is still in the discussion stage.
According to AFL PNG Senior Football Manager Mr. Rex Leka, a team from the PNG Sports Foundation along with the PNG AFL Commission and the Sports Minister Don Polye, recently visited AFL facilities in Australia to have a look at the designs and share ideas on how the proposed stadium should be like.
“Right now everything is in the talking stage, there is nothing confirmed yet as to when the new stadium will be built.”
The proposed new stadium is expected to be built at the site of the Colts Oval and should serve as the home of AFL in Port Moresby.
The sports minister did announce as well that a funding of about K10million was allocated solely for this project.
Once constructed, the new stadium will be an achievement for AFL PNG on its efforts to develop the sporting code in a mainly rugby league dominated country.
