Pacific Games Council hoping Mini Games will stay in Saipan

From , 4:00 pm on 19 March 2019

The Pacific Games Council remains hopeful the Northern Marianas can still host the 2021 Mini Games, despite the Governor announcing they would pull out due to the destruction brought by Super Typhoon Yutu.

Ralph Torres said the Category 5 super typhoon had strained the CNMI's coffers and greatly affected the government's ability to financially back the Games.

But Pacific Games Council CEO Andrew Minogue told Vinnie Wylie they believe a solution can still be found to keep the Games in Saipan.
