Meanwhile, registrations are now open for any interested teams who wish to play beach soccer in the beach soccer league. Reuben Oimae at the SIFF Lawson Tama office will be available to register teams.

Registration fee for a player or any other official registration is $25 while the registered fee for any interested team is $250.

Boso stated that a maximum of 20 players are allowed to register and they must have a sponsoring partner.

"Registrations will open for one week and if there are enough teams registered, then they will confirm to the public if they will hold a league straight away or a pre- season competition first," says Mr. Nelson Boso.

The committee will hold a meeting at the end of the registrations next week, to discuss when the Beach Soccer League will start.
