Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has officially opened the country’s first ever Multi-Purpose Futsal facility, the friendship hall on November 1 2022.
The opening of the Friendship hall will not only boost the moral and training experience of current and upcoming futsal players but will also complement training programs for other indoor sports including volleyball, basketball, netball, and more.
Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare during the opening ceremony also affirmed local sports federations that the facility is designed for multi-purpose sports, which means it can also accommodate other sports competitions, trainings, and public events.
The National Hosting Authority as the current custodian of sporting facilities that are being built in preparation for the Sol2023 Pacific Games, will be co-managing the facilities with NSC and is keen on opening these facilities to the sports federations to enhance their preparations.
Since the opening of the Friendship hall this week, the NHA has already received several requests for the use of the facility for upcoming sporting events including the Bulk Shop Futsal finals which are expected to take place on 4 November 2022.
