2023 Solomon Islands Pacific Games

K50,000 for boxers

Yesterday’s cheque presentation was a big boost for PNG Boxing Union and a kind gesture by National Finance to our boxers, who are looking forward to representing the country at this year’s Pacific Games in the Solomon Islands come November 2023.

Due to financial constraints, the PNG Boxing Union put out a public appeal to business houses and corporate entities to assist with the levy costs for the team. The National Finance responded positively with a commitment to assist with the huge funding support.  

Team PNG finalised for Pacific Games

Team PNG will compete in 20 sports, involving a team of 520, including athletes, officials, management, and medical staff.

From an initial roster of 24 sports, Rugby 9s, Judo, and Sailing, were excluded and most recently, Karate, has been excluded.

The decision on Karate is being appealed by the sport to the PNG Sports Dispute Tribunal.
