Viet Nam to host SEA Games in 2021

Viet Nam will host the 31st SEA Games in 2021 and HCM City is to serve as the rendezvous point for the regional sports festival, according to the Viet Nam Olympic Committee.

This is the second time the country has been selected by the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games Federation to host the biannual Games, after the 22nd games were held in Ha Noi in 2003.

The Games will be held two years after Viet Nam hosts the 18th Asian Games, the region's largest sports competition.

Singapore is set to host the 28th Games next year, while the 29th, 30th and 32nd are to be held in Malaysia, Brunei and Cambodia, respectively. — VNS
