The Pacific Games Council (PGC) manages and organises the Pacific Games, a quadrennial
multi-sport event with participation from Pacific island countries and territories (PICTs).
The ONOC and PGC partnership is important as the Pacific Games is used as a Continental games event in the lead up to the Olympic Games in every quadrennial.
It began in 1963 and Fiji hosted the inaugural games in Suva almost 60 years ago. Since then, the games have united athletes from 22 PICTs in venues throughout the Oceania region. The Pacific Games maintain a high standing within the Regional sporting calendar and a growing reputation for sporting excellence.
The 15th Pacific Games held in Port Moresby in 2015 enjoyed a full programme of the maximum 28 sports and for the first time ever included Australia and New Zealand by invitation in four sports.
The PGC through the Pacific Games offers Pacific Small Island developing States (Pacific SIDS) the opportunity to develop and promote sports in their local communities, identify sporting talent, provide a platform for participation in a multitude of sports, and offers a bridge to the Olympic experience.
