"Lauru, Guadalcanal, Malaita and Central have registered a team each" Ngava said. "Western Province is currently finishing of its local league, should have a winner soon"
Other provinces have complained that their tournaments are yet to be completed. "We are yet to complete our league so it's difficult to determine who should represent us" A concerned soccer player stated. "We might be forced to send last years champions which will be very unfair for those currently leading the league"
