Accommodation Ready to Receive First Athletes

Thursday, 30 May 2013


The visiting athletes and officials will be mainly staying at three accommodation venues.


Many of the overseas technical officials, New Caledonia and New Zealand will be staying at the Institute of Sport at Stade Pater.


Staying at the Football Hall will be the teams from Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands and Samoa.


The majority of teams  -  American Samoa, Fiji, Guam, Nauru, Northern Marianas, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Wallis & Futuna  -  will be accommodated at the Protestant Hall.


The main dining area is at Protestant Hall, with the Institute of Sport being the eating venue for those staying there and at the Football Hall.


The Football Hall is a new building, opened in 2009. In the 1995 South Pacific Games it was the site of the warm-up area for the athletes, who then walked the short distance to the Stade Pater for their events. It is now a much better place for athletes to warm-up with the ground being turned into a football-training site.
