The new President of the Solomon Islands Football Federation wants the administration to be debt-free within the next four years.
A new executive was elected by an overwhelming majority at the end of March, following 18 months under a normalisation committee.
The President, William Lai says the committee did a great job to cut debt levels by about 20 percent and he believes football in the Solomon Islands has a challenging but bright future.
William Lai wants the remaining debt to be gone at the end of their four year term and says the new administration is ready to dig in.
"We're still in debt in the region of about six million dollars. That's why we need to cut it down - that's important because football is part of business. With the support of FIFA and we are a football nation we ened to compete in all levels of football in Oceania. I hope that stakeholders in Solomon Islands will support us. I think we believe that those bad times are over and with a new executive we [will] work hard and people should have the trust in us to move the game higher, to ensure that everything is accountable, transparent and we move as a team".
William Lai says his administration is not just for Honiara and plans to put more investment into the provinces and regional football as well.
