Papua New Guinea will for the first time host teams from New Zealand, New Caledonia and Vanuatu in the group stage of the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Champions League.
Following a successful bid, PNG Football Association president John Kapi Natto said the country was looking forward to co-hosting the region’s premier international club tourney in February.
“We are excited,” Kapi Natto said in a statement.
“It will be a good change for PNG football fans to witness Hekari United in action on home soil against top clubs from New Zealand, New Caledonia and Vanuatu next year.
“The event will take place from 16-22 Feb.”
Group A will be held in Port Moresby with Hekari United hosting Hienghene Sport (New Caledonia), Eastern
Suburbs (New Zealand) and Galaxy (Vanuatu).
In Group B, Papua New Guinea champions Lae City will be travelling to Vanuatu to face hosts Malampa Revivors, Lautoka (Fiji) and the S-League runners-up (Solomon Island), who are yet to be determined.
Kapi Natto thanked the OFC executive committee for awarding Hekari and PNGFA the right to host a group tournament in the country....
