The Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games are on schedule

The Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games, which were previously postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will almost certainly be held this year according to the set date.

Head of the Malaysian Contingent to the Hangzhou 2023 Asian Games, Datuk Chong Kim Fatt said the host, China, is ready to host the biggest sports event in Asia.

In fact, he was also informed that the games this time are not expected to be held through the sports bubble method, instead it will take place in the same way as the previous edition.

“The results are expected to be known this March, but I can share that the host’s preparations to organize the games this time are 100 percent.

“I also understand that the Asian Games will not be organized in a sports bubble because the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) do not like it that way.

“They want this Games to go on as usual because if not, it will be like the Tokyo Olympics which lost because they cannot sell tickets, and the financial position of the organizers will face problems,” he said.

For the record, the 19th edition of the Asian Games, which was scheduled to take place from 10 to 25 September 2022, has been postponed to a new date from 23 September to 8 October 2023
