The Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), which are traditionally held every two years, will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from May 5th to 17th of this year.
Since 1959, about 40 sports have been included in the program of regularly held games.
The city of Phnom Penh has won the right to host the SEA Games twice in its history. (The games were canceled in 1963 due to the political situation in the country.)
On May 5, the official opening ceremony of the games will be held at the Morodok Techo National Stadium. The stadium has a capacity of 60,000 spectators. It is planned to be attended by the heads of the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic Council of Asia and international sports federations and participating countries, as well as high-ranking officials of the Cambodian government.
King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia is expected to officially open the Games at a ceremony.
According to a report published by the Cambodian Ministry of Economy and Finance, more than 200 million dollars are being spent on high-level hosting of games, construction of sports complexes, reconstruction and additional services. Construction of sports complexes started in 2014-2015.
At the SEA Games-2023, which will be held under the slogan “Sports: live in peace”, athletes from 11 countries of the Southeast Asian region will compete for a total of 608 medals in 36 sports.
We remind you that kurash has been officially included in the program of the Southeast Asian Games since 2019. It is planned to hold kurash competitions in 10 weight categories in Phnom Penh.
