Football is also enjoying a boom among young boys and girls in Papua New Guinea. No other sport enjoys such a huge following. Although rugby league (the national team is known as the Pumas) is regarded as the leading sport in some regions, it is nowhere near as popular as football.
In a change to the project approved by the Goal Bureau on 3 December 2006, the second project will see the upgrading of the already constructed national football academy in Lae. A technical centre, the first of its kind in the region, will also be built in Kimbe, West New Britain, to focus on grooming young players through structured development programmes. The association also expects these two centres to provide administrative support. The Goal Bureau approved this project, which should take five months to complete, on 22 October 2008.
