Federations urged to start fundraising

THE Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) has urged national sporting federations to start fundraising and arranging money for the Pacific Games early.

This was after they announced that sports that wish to participate at the Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea next year would need to pay an upfront bond of F$2000 by as early as June.

The bond covers an eventual withdrawal of a sport after committing to participation.

The withdrawal of a sport within a specified period would incur a penalty of US$1000 and therefore the non-refundable bond of F$2000 is to ensure ongoing commitment to participate in the Games.

FASANOC president Reg Sanday said sports should have learnt from their experience before the 2013 Pacific Mini Games.

He has asked all participating federations to start fundraising early.

"The bond is due by June 7," Sanday said.

FASANOC clarified that the total budgeted cost of sending a Team Fiji member to Port Moresby would be $4800.

As usual, the total cost is equally shared among the national federation, government and FASANOC.

And the levy of $1600 is one third of the total budgeted cost for an athlete which the national federation would have to raise funds for.

FASANOC last week announced the appointment of Fiji's chef demission to the Pacific Games, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games.
