The Papua New Guinea Club Champion, Hekari Souths United is ready for the showdown with Koloale FC on Saturday next week at Lawson Tama.

Hekari United club owner John Kapi Natto confirmed from Port Moresby that they are looking forward for this match.

He hints that all the local players he contracted to play for his club will likely make up the 18-strong team that will be traveling to Honiara for their O'league's opening match.

Meanwhile, preparations are progressing well in Honiara with the local organizing committee working around the clock to ensure things are in place before the match day.

Tickets for the O'league clash will be ready for sale by mid next week.
The local organizing committee would like to pre-sell grandstand ticket because of limited seats in the stand.

It is likely tickets would be sold on a first come first serve basis and those who would like to get a seat in the stand are urged to buy it early.

The committee agreed on five different admission fees. The grandstand admission fees are $75 (light blue seats) $50 (dark blue seats) and $25 for the complimentary hill. Adult standing is $10 and children $5.
