Hosting Of 2019 Pacific Games Up For Grab, Says Lakhan

 

The Pacific Games Council presi­dent Vidhya Lakhan yesterday in­vited countries who are interested to host the 2019 Pacific Games to send in their expression of interest.

This was after the Council was ad­vised on May 29 by the Tongan gov­ernment that they have withdrawn from hosting the Games. A June 30 deadline was given for Tonga to re­consider their decision but nothing eventuated.

“Therefore, on behalf of the Pa­cific Games Council, I formally in­vite PGA’s to lodge an expression of interest to host the 16th Pacific Games in 2019 as expressions of in­terest will be due on Monday, July 31,” Lakhan said.

“The executive board will then conduct an assessment process throughout August, which will in­clude visits by the president and CEO to prospective host locations, and aim to make recommendations on a host location by the end of Au­gust.”
