OCA announces new dates for Asian Games


The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) on Tuesday announced the new dates for the 19th Asian Games, which will now be held in Hangzhou from September 23 to October 8, 2023.

The Asian Games was originally scheduled to be held in Hangzhou from 10 to 25 September 2022, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Games were postponed by the OCA Executive Board (EB) on May 6 and a “Task Force” was created by the EB to finalise the new dates for the Games.

The OCA said that the Task Force over the last two months held various discussions with the Chinese Olympic Committee, Hangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee (HAGOC) and other stakeholders to find a window for the Games which did not conflict with other major international sporting events. The recommended dates by the Task Force were duly approved by the EB.
