The Sol2023 Pacific Games Ambassadors program last week completed its week-long of Gela and Savo islands in the beautiful Central Islands Province (CIP), Solomon Islands.

Former national footballer and coach, Timothy Inifiri was the Games Ambassador on tour in Central Islands.

“It was real good having the opportunity to go back to where I started my football carrier literally took off. I nurtured and developed my football knowledge and experience right here in Tulagi – the provincial capital.

“Having the chance to come back as a Games Ambassador and help inform, advocate, educate and share my footballing experiences to today’s generation is indeed an honor for me,” Timothy said.
