Cambodia will host the 5th Asian Youth Games in 2029 – archyde

DUBAI, November 21 (Xinhuanet) – The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) added two more multisport games to its calendar during the 40th OCA General Assembly in Dubai on Sunday.

According to the OCA, the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia has signed a contract with the OCA to host the 5th Asian Youth Games in Phnom Penh in 2029.

This is the first time Cambodia has hosted an OCA event, and it will be six years after the country first hosted the 11-nation Southeast Asian Games in 2023.

Later during the meeting, the host city of the 2034 Asian Games, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, asked the General Assembly for approval to host the OCA’s 7th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in 2025 with a trial event nine years prior to hosting the 22nd Asian Games.

The two additions to the OCA sports calendar also underlined the robust program of the OCA, because as its flagship event, the Asian Games are already guaranteed for the next four editions: the 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China in September 2022; the 20th Asian Games in Aichi-Nagoya, Japan in 2026; the 21st Asian Games in Doha, Qatar in 2030; and the 22nd Asian Games in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 2034.
