VIDEO footages of the Digicel Cup matches have helped in crowd control over the last eight rounds of competition this season, says Digicel Cup competition manager Stanley Hondina.

Hondina in a press conference on Thursday thanked host of freelancers and TVWAN for providing much needed footages that has helped in the area.

He said apart from that he was overwhelmed that the video footages had built the reputation of the league to identify and make comparisons to what they lacked over the years.

“The recording of the games has helped in controlling the crowd behavior,” Hondina told the press conference.

He said eight weeks and there were no major issues and added this has showed improved statistic in violence unlike the past.

He said the teams have received words of warning that there are to be no violence to disrepute the games, “and they have taken heed of that.”

Meanwhile the Digicel Cup goes into final rounds after the round 14 slated August 27 on September 10.

Hondina, however, reiterated that the finals rounds might be affected and brought forward to another week with the anticipation of the PNG SP Hunters to get the minor premiership with possible chances on the cards.

The finals format will be the top four with the minor premiers playing the second placed teams in the major semi-final to decide the first grand final attempt.
