At the closing ceremony, Uguro thanked everyone, including businesses, sponsors and district security personnel, for making the tournament a success over the past two weeks. The tournament was launched by Prime Minister James Marape who recently visited Walium to inaugurate the stadium.
The tournament attracted a record 150 teams who played in different sporting codes. Codes that completed their games received rewards from fourth place to first, including top teams and top players in the tournament.
Minister Uguro thanked the police and all who provided security during the event.
He was also pleased with the cash flow in the district during the tournament. People bought and sold food and earned extra income.
In the meantime, the minister has asked the Electoral Commission to consider using the stadium as a counting place for the election.
The facilities inside the stadium are still under construction and will be completed as soon as possible with new structures to be established for sports such as bodybuilding, boxing and athletics.
Uguro welcomed anyone wishing to use the facility, to make a reservation as the facility needs to earn money to support itself.
