Other Sports: Vietnam SEA Games pushed back to May 2022 due to Covid-19 concerns, says OCM

PETALING JAYA: The Vietnam SEA Games will not be held this year and has been pushed back to May 2022 due to Covid-19 concerns, confirms the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM).

The OCM said the decision was made during the SEA Games Federation (SEAGF) Office meeting on Monday (Oct 18).

However, the new dates for the region’s biggest multi-sport event will only be known at the end of this month.

“At the meeting, it was confirmed that the 31st SEA Games 2021 will be held in the middle of May 2022,” the OCM said in a statement.

“The exact dates will be confirmed by the end of October 2021 as the Organising Committee is awaiting final confirmation from their government.”

The scheduled dates for the 2023 Cambodia SEA Games from May 5-16 remains unaffected

“It was also agreed that the Cambodia National Olympic Committee, as the host of the 32nd SEA Games 2023, will, from Dec 2, 2021, become the co-president of the SEAGF, together with the Vietnam National Olympic Committee,” the statement added.

“This will ensure smooth preparations for the 32nd SEA Games 2023 which will be held from May 5-16, 2023.
