Last weekend saw the Day 5 of Port Vila Football Association (PVFA) Premier Division matches, with a win and 2 draws from the 3 matches.
Port Vila Football Association had announced a week before that weekend to be the final weekend before Van2017 takes over the stadium.
PVFA President Stephen Felix took to the PA system to officially thank the match officials, football fans and players for actively being there for PVFA to complete 5 championship matches.
“I thank you all. Port Vila Football Association Premier Division will kick off again on Friday 15th December, a day after the closing of the 10th South Pacific Mini Games,” Felix said.
As of this week Van2017 will take over the Port Vila Stadium for some much needed renovations and will see part of the pitch dug out, to make room for new grass to be planted.
All these works will be done so that Port Vila Stadium will meet the FIFA Standards before the Games kick off from December 2nd to 14th.
