Tight Security in Place for O' League Final

Security during the first leg of the O' league Champion clubs final will be beefed up to ensure the match day is trouble free.

The Solomon Islands Football Federation has liaised with local security firms and will engage police and private securities to ensure security is maintained throughout and after the match.

The Local Organising committee also agreed that sale of coconut, betel nut and other food and beverages inside the stadium will not be allowed.

SIFF, in a statement said that it believes that to ensure a trouble-free match, certain restrictions have to be put in place including the outright ban of vendors inside, and also outside of the stadium. .

The committee is liaising with the National Olympic Committee of Solomon Islands and the Honiara City Council for an effective implementation of the policy. The land outside the Lawson Tama stadium is owned by the two bodies and the committee is ensuring that they also understand the security requirements.

SIFF warns those intending to turn up drunk on the match day are urged to think again as they will not be allowed entry into Lawson Tama.

The LOC has instructed the local security firm that has been engaged to ensure those consuming alcohol are refused entry.
