Quote:
The Islamic Solidarity Games is a multinational, multi-sport event. The Games involve the elite athletes of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference. The Islamic Solidarity Games Federation (ISSF) is the organisation that is responsible for the direction and control of the Islamic Solidarity Games.
The first event was held in 2005 in Saudi Arabia and there are currently 57 members of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference. Non-Muslim citizens in the member countries are also allowed to take part in the Games.
The second event, originally scheduled to take place in October 2009 in Iran, and later re-scheduled for April 2010, was canceled after a dispute arose between Iran and the Arab World

Riau on Double Duty for Islamic Olympics, Nationals
Quote:
Riau will host the 2013 Islamic Solidarity Games, dubbed as the Olympics of the Muslim world, the event’s organizer announced late on Thursday.

All 57 member nations of the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation voted to hold the Games at Riau during a recent meeting in Saudi Arabia.

Governor Rusli Zainal welcomed the decision, saying that the province — which was also chosen to host the 2012 National Games — was already preparing the facilities for both sporting events.

Officials from the Islamic Solidarity Sports Federation visited three main venues for the games on Tuesday and said they were pleased with what they saw.

“After visiting several venues today, we’re optimistic that the games will be a huge success here,” said Mohammad Gazdar, the ISSF’s secretary general. “I congratulate Riau and believe that Riau will be a good host when the time comes.” ...readmore

[Spectator Guide]

Transmetro Pekanbaru Bus Rapid Transit

here in the capital of Riau, you have not to worry with the public transportation. it is well-mantained although still not covering the whole city yet.
Currently there are 2 corridors, and the third is about to open.
Before september 2012, there will be 6 corridors of Transmetro Pekanbaru BRT
