From , 4:00 pm on 1 December 2017

An official Tahiti team will not be part of the Pacific Mini Games, with the territory's athletes to compete under a neutral banner, following the French Polynesia's government's decision to boycott the event.

The government withdrew support following a disagreement over who should represent Tahiti in boxing and rugby sevens in Port Vila.

The Pacific Games Council's Chief Executive, Andrew Minogue, told Vinnie Wylie a boxing delegation will attend the Games while rugby sevens is expected to follow suit.
