After successfully hosting the 2017 Pacific Mini Games, Pacific Games Council CEO Andrew Minogue says Vanuatu has already expressed their interest in hosting the games.

"It appears that they're looking to use these mini games as a possible springboard to host the main ones," he says. "That's what the Minister said at the closing ceremony, they'd like to bid for the 2027 [games] in 10 years time."

Both Niue and American Samoa have expressed their interest in hosting the 2025 Pacific Mini Games and Samoa will host the 2019 Pacific Games after Tonga withdrew their hosting rights earlier this year.
