Ongoing Official Car of the NMIF

For the past Triple J Motors is proud to provide the “official car” of the Northern Mariana Islands Football Association (NMIFA).  This brand new, 2017 Mazda3i Touring hatchback is donated to NMIFA for their use for two years and this is the second car that we have provided to the organization.  This will be the fourth year of providing NMIFA with their “official car” and this partnership with NMIFA is a great “match” for Triple J Motors for a number of reasons.

First, the sport of soccer has grown enormously in the CNMI over the last decade thanks to the tremendous efforts of Mr. Jerry Tan and all past and present NMIFA officers, coaches and staff.  Soccer is an excellent way for the CNMI’s youth and adults to stay fit and enjoy the camaraderie of a team sport.

Growing the soccer program on Saipan only encourages more youth and adults to get involved, promoting teamwork and overall wellness of our community along with the added benefit of increasing sports tourism in the CNMI with the draw of a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility.
