Solomon Islands 2023 Pacific Games secures funding

The Solomon Islands 2023 Pacific Games Organising Committee has secured a sponsorship deal with Solomon Breweries worth around US$115,000.

However, Inside the Games reports the Games boss saying there will be no beer sales at the venues.

Solomon Islands 2023 chief executive Peter Stewart said the responsible use of alcohol is an important message that the Games can assist with sending throughout the sporting community.

But SolBrew beer will be used exclusively at Pacific Games VIP and corporate functions, both in the lead-up to and during the Games.

Solomon Islands has experienced difficulty in funding the Pacific Games but has received financial support from Australia, China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Japan, and South Korea.
