OFC congratulates Pacific Games Council

Mr. Vidya Lakhan
Pacific Games Council

Dear Mr. Lakhan,


Just a short note to congratulate you, your Executive Board and the Pacific Games Associations on the professional manner in which you organised and conducted the General Assembly in Noumea last week.

Special mention should be made to your Executive Director, Mr Andrew Minogue who has worked tirelessly to contribute to the success.

On behalf of the OFC President we would like to thank you for your consideration to amend the Pacific Games Charter to allow certain codes like football to participate at the Games and at the same time use International Federation rules as it relates to eligibility.  As you all know this is very important for football as we use the Pacific Games as a World Cup qualifying event and rankings for both the men and women.

From the outset OFC is committed to working with the Pacific Games Council by ensuring football is present at the games and providing the necessary resources for the infrastructure and organisation of the football tournament.

Like you we have no doubt that the Pacific Games in New Caledonia in 2011 will be a great success and we will continue to work with the Games Council in the future to build on this success.

We trust you are well and look forward to meeting with you again.

Yours faithfully,

This program is an extension of its existing one that currently invovles five sports - Netball, Football, Rugby, League and Cricket.  The program is now open to all Austrlaian sports but requires that they submit an application in partnership with their Oceania body.

OSFO can support sports currently in the program and those wanting to apply this round.  We will be conducting some webinars over the next week to act as forums for discussion.
