Honiara women’s league set for March


THE 2018 Honiara Football Association (HFA) open Women’s League is scheduled to kick off on March 10.

The league will be administered by the Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) Women’s Football Development Department.

SIFF Women’s Development Officer Diane Justus confirmed that they are targeting a minimum of 10 teams for the league.

Registration will close on March 2, a week ahead of the tentative kick off date on March 10.

Ms Justus said this week they are liaising with clubs and schools who wish to take part in the league.

“We are also seeking sponsors. Currently, we have no sponsor for the league and its running and prizes will be funded by SIFF.

“Someone who will coordinate the league is yet to be named as well. We will confirm it later but we would like to have a female to do it.”

Matches for the Honiara women’s league will be played at SIFF Academy.

Ms Justus encourages players to do their own training whilst waiting for their teams to begin training.

“Teams too are strongly encouraged to start training together as a team as early as possible to avoid last minute preparation.”
