2019 Asian Games / XVIII Asiad bids

Potential bids: 2019 Asian Games
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Asian_Games

The 2019 Asian Games (also known as the XVIII Asiad) is the largest sporting event in Asia and is governed by Olympic Council of Asia. The selection process is yet to begin, however several countries already announced their interest in bidding this Games.

Hanoi, Vietnam

Afterbowed out in favour of Incheon for the 2014 Asian Games, Vietnam is set to place a bid to host the 2018 event in Hanoi. Nguyen Hong Minh, vice president of Vietnam Olympic Committee said that they have credibility in hosting the large events after the successful organisation of the 2003 Southeast Asian Games and also the APEC meeting in November 2006.

Manila, Philippines

The Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) plans to bid for the 2019 Asian Games in the capital city of Manila. In a visit to Guangzhou in June 2009, Philippine Sports Commission chairman Harry Angping was impressed with the infrastructure being built and the economic benefits it would bring to the city. He said he would try to convince president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to bid for the 2018 Asian Games. The country was the host of 1954 Asian Games and has successfully hosted the Southeast Asian Games on 3 occasions - in 1981, 1991 and 2005. The country will host again in 2019.

Singapore City, Singapore

The Singapore Sports Council is considering bidding to host the 2018 Asian Games following the establishment of the Singapore Grand Prix and the city state's securing of the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics, the inaugural edition of these games. Singapore will also host the 2013 Southeast Asian Games, whilst the city is developing a world-class Sports Hub which expected to be open in 2011.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

President of Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), Sheikh Fahad Al-Sabah stated that Dubai is considering placing a bid for the 2018 edition of the games. Previously, Dubai was to bid for the 2014 event, however they withdrew because they did not see it as a priority.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

On August 7th 2009 it is reported that Malaysia will bid to host the 2019 Asian Games.

This was announced by Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek who said his ministry would inform the Cabinet about this to get its approval for the bid.

"Malaysia has the experience to host world-class games like when we hosted the Commonwealth Games in 1998. I believe with that experience Malaysia can host the Asian Games," he told reporters here Friday.

Even though I dislike the new one-year-ahead-of-the-Summer-Olympics date because the first Asian Games were held in 1951 instead of 1950, I would like to see Kuala Lumpur host an Asian Games. They have already hosted the Southeast Asian Games and the Commonwealth Games, and an Asian Games would put the city one step closer to hosting an Olympics.If Kuala Lumpur fails in this attempt, they can try for the 2022/3 Asian Games. And they can bid for every successive Asian games until they win the right.

Olympic Council To Finalise Calendar Changes
Tuesday, June 30, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 (Bernama) -- The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) will finalise proposed changes to its competitions calendar which include re-scheduling its flagship event, Asian Games, to a five-year cycle, instead of the current four years at its 28th General Assembly in Singapore on Friday.

The OCA Sports Committee, at its meeting in the island republic on Monday, proposed that the Asian Games be held in 2019 -- a year before the Summer Olympic Games -- instead of the traditional two years before the Olympics.

According to the OCA website, the proposed changes include the merging of the Asian Indoor Games and the Asian Martial Arts Games into one event, held every four years.

This would leave the OCA with five events, as opposed to six in the current schedule.

According to the website, the final approval of the changes could only be given by the General Assembly, which meets on July 3.

With events already pencilled through to the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, the new calendar would take effect from 2016, according to the website.

Sports committee chairman Wei Jizhong said, the new cycle would alleviate the logistical burden on the OCA's 45 national olympic committees and result in only one multi-sports event per year -- except in the year of an Asian Winter Games, when there would be two.

In general, the OCA would try and restrict one sport to one game but in special circumstances such as beach volleyball, the same sport could be played in two different games, he said.

"Beginning 2016, we will use the new cycle, following studies and discussions among committee members, and with the OCA technical department.

"This proposal will go to the Executive Board and in general, we accept, with some comments. We will say the Sports Committee agreed in principle with all these proposals, regarding the distribution of sports and the cycle," he added.

The OCA will hold three events this year, namely the first Asian Youth Games in Singapore, first Asian Martial Arts Games in Thailand and the third Asian Indoor Games in Vietnam.

The proposed new cycle, including International Olympic Committee events, would be as follows:

2011: Asian Winter Games (Astana-Almaty, Kazakhstan).

2012: Olympic Games (London), Asian Beach Games (Haiyang, China).

2013: Asian Youth Games (Incheon, South Korea), Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games (Doha, Qatar).

2014: Youth Olympic Games, Winter Olympic Games, Asian Games (Incheon, South Korea).

2015: Asian Beach Games (to be decided).

2016: Olympic Games; Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games (TBD).

2017: Asian Winter Games (TBD), Asian Youth Games (TBD).

2018: Youth Olympic Games, Winter Olympic Games; Asian Beach Games (TBD).

2019: Asian Games (TBD).

2020: Olympic Games, Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games (TBD).

The two OCA events next year will be the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou, China, in November and the second Asian Beach Games in Muscat, Oman, in December.

It's 2018 Asian Games, get that right! Oh they're proposing a change I see...

I do hope Manila gets it as a test event to see if they can host something as big as this or the Olympics.
It'll only remotely work of course, if they have a dedicated "Olympic Park" with an odd 70,000 seater main stadium, a new arena, velodrome and aquatics center at the least. Add the hockey field too, then use the venues used for the 2005 SEA games, assuming that they're easily accessible from rail.

Seven disciplines cut from 2014 line-up
12 July 2009
SCMP

The Olympic Council of Asia has decided to reduce the number of disciplines at the quadrennial Asian Games to 35 at the 2014 event in South Korea.

Randhir Singh, general-secretary of the OCA, said last night the council made the decision to trim the event at its general assembly in Singapore on Friday. The Asian Games is the biggest multiple-sports event outside of the Olympics and will feature 42 different sports in next year's edition in Guangzhou.

"The OCA felt the Asian Games had grown too big, the decision to put a cap on the number of sports will come into effect from 2014," Singh said. From 2014, the Asian Games would feature "a maximum of seven sports outside the Olympic schedule", he said.

The OCA also decided to change the cycle of the Asian Games.

After the 2014 games in Incheon, South Korea, the next edition will be staged in 2019. They will then continue to be held a year ahead of the Olympics. The host city for the 2019 Asian Games is still to be decided.

Several disciplines from the Asian Games roster of 2010 will now be moved to other continental multiple-sport games, such as the Asian Indoor Games, Asian Martial Arts Games and Asian Beach Games.

Actually,I think Kuala Lumpur is the best choice we have but Vietnam is the interesting choice and I'd like to see Asian games in Vietnam for once.

KL's stadium looks awesome, considering it was built to host the Commonwealth Games.

Interesting how Malaysia has never hosted the Asiad. I think it's time. However, Singapore is a huge contender.
