The President of Samoa's Olympic Committee said his country is ready and waiting to host the 2019 Pacific Games.

Last week Guam joined Samoa and French Polynesia in bidding for the right to host the games after Tonga belatedly pulled out because of a lack of government support.

SASNOC's Fepuleai Patrick Fepuleai said he welcomed the competition, and everyone has the right to do what they feel is right for their own country.

But he said Samoa has everything needed to host a successful games.

"I can't say about the others because I haven't seen what they have put on offer but all I know is that most of our facilities exist already. Just a couple that need a bit of renovating.

"We just recently hosted the Youth Commonwealth Games in 2015 and most of our facilities existed when we hosted [the Pacific Games] in 2007. We're basically ready."
