THE SIPA National Futsal League is rescheduled to kick off early next month after the competition was postponed last week.
The national futsal league was originally scheduled for March 22 but was moved to April 3 due to slow responses from teams for registrations according to Solomon Islands Football Federation Futsal Development Officer, Jerry Sam.
Sam said the postponement was because of the team’s slow response in getting their teams registered for the competition.
“We decided to move the competition for Monday because all the teams were slow to respond to our call for them to register,” Mr Sam said.
“We cannot start the competition when half complete. This is the national futsal league and therefore must be handled properly.
“If all the team managements had responded earlier we would have kicked started the league last week,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Futsal Development Officer is calling on all mangers of the 12 participating teams to attend a technical meeting Monday next week to finalise the draws.
“I want to call on all team managers to attend a very important meeting Monday next week so we can do the draws and then finalise the fixtures for the competition,” he said.
The 12 confirmed teams are:
- Marist Futsal Club
- Kossa Futsal Club
- Vania Futsal Club
- Koloale Futsal Club
- G Camp Futsal Club
- Mataks Futsal Club
- National U-17 Futsal Team
- Guntimak Futsal Club
- Real Kakamora Futsal Club
- Henderson Futsal Club
- Cool Line Futsal Club
- Indo-Solo Futsal Club
