The 2015 Pacific Games venue tickets are on sale today with the launching at the Bank South Pacific, Harbour City branch in Port Moresby.
There are 650,000 tickets for sale, with the public now able to purchase at multiple outlets throughout the country.
Tickets will be sold over the next two weeks at selected BSP branches and thereafter at BSP and other merchants.
Governor Parkop was given the honour to purchase the first two tickets as host.
Games CEO, Peter Stewart, when thanking BSP, encouraged the public to purchase tickets early as there is limited stock available, particular with discount packages.
Dessie Bobi was another customer who purchased three tickets for her family and expressed her excitement about being one of the first customers.
BSP Chief Financial Officer also says; the Pacific Games are not just about sports and strengthening relations with the rest of the Pacific but they are an opportunity to restore unity, pride and nationalism, and they are encouraging everyone to purchase their tickets and be part of the 15th Pacific games.
