The traditional ribbon cutting ceremony was performed by the esteemed Vairani Davio, president of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2013 Local Organizing Committee. Also present for this momentous occasion were Michel Buillard, Major of Papeete, and Pascal Vahirua, the only Polynesian to ever play for the French National Football team.
For this special event, over 150 very important members of the community came. Two very important people present were, too, Jonathan Tehau and Steevy Chong Hue, both players of the Tahitian National Football team who won over the hearts of thousands in the Confederations Cup 2013 set in Brazil. Steevy Chong said that ?this is a great time for Tahitian football and that this FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup is great not only for Papeete, but also for the island of Tahiti and for all of French Polynesia?. He also went on to say that this event will also help boost the economy, something in which the TIKI store will play a part.
