Support the 2018 MicroGames as an Official Sponsor!

On behalf of the 9th Micronesian Games Organizing Committee, we are honored to invite you to join with the Governor of Yap and the citizens of Yap in supporting this important quadrennial multi-sport event being held July 15 – 27, 2018 on our beautiful island of Yap.

The purpose of the MicroGames is to promote a unique, friendly, world-class sporting event and to develop sport for the benefit of the people, the nations and the territories of the Micronesian community. Our goal is to insure the physical health and mental well-being of our youth through lifelong participation in active sport and healthy eating.

We are asking you to provide your generous support with a cash or in-kind donation. Your contribution will not only support today’s athletes, but will inspire the next generation to excel in a sport of their choosing now and in the future. In return we will provide you with the benefits according to your level of contribution.

An estimated 1,600 men and women athletes, coaches and supporters from the four islands of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Palau, Kiribati, the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam will come together for two weeks of competition in thirteen sports: Baseball, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, Va’a Canoe, Soccer, Spearfishing, Table Tennis, Track & Field, Volleyball, Weightlifting, Wrestling, Open Ocean Swimming and the Micronesian All-Around.

More than 1,000 volunteers will be assisting throughout the Games, and we are expecting visitors from around the world including Ambassadors from Australia, the United States, China and Japan as well as VIPs from each participating country. In addition, through our robust marketing campaign, we will reach a significant number of the 600,000 residents of Micronesia, 120,000 of whom are active users of social media and have marked “sports” as an “interest.” The events will be streamed live to thousands of viewers including those Micronesians who will be cheering on their countries’ competitors from abroad. Up-to-date news and results will be posted on social media along with daily news bulletins to media in the athletes’ home countries and states.

Your brand will be prominently displayed and recognized as a supporter of this international event.

Your support will enhance the competitive experience of the young athletes representing their islands and their countries and, as a result, enhance their skills needed to compete in future international competitions. The Games will also benefit our regional tourism industry, showcase the athletes from all of the Micronesian jurisdictions, and further enhance Micronesia’s standing and reputation among the nations of the Pacific and the world.

Mr. John Mootmag and Mr. James Lukan serve on our Organizing Committee and are co-chairs of the Marketing Committee. They would be happy to speak with you on our behalf to discuss your sponsorship and answer your questions. Please contact them through the MicroGames office at 2018microgames@gmail.com.

We hope you will accept our invitation to support athletic competition in your country and throughout Micronesia by backing the extraordinary determination, discipline and achievement of Micronesia’s athletes both on and off the playing field.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,


Francis Itimai
