Samoa to Bid for 2019 Pacific Games; Fiji also Intends to Bid

*** Samoa Puts Hands Up to 2019 Pacific Games ***

 

“We’re happy to host and we have the ability to do so,” are the words of the President of the Samoa Association of Sport and National Olympic Committee (S.A.S.N.O.C.), Fepulea’i Patrick Fepulea’i.

His sentiments were reported by the Samoa Observer, following Tonga’s withdrawal from hosting the 2019 Pacific Games.

He also acknowledged there are other countries in the region who are just as capable.

Fiji, for one has made their intentions known, stating that they have some of the best facilities in the region.

Though Tonga’s decision to withdraw was fairly recent, and like the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASNOC), Samoa’s Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee is yet to consult the government before they can bid to host.
