About - 19th Asian Games 202210 SEP - 25 SEP

The XIX Asiad is planned to take place in Hangzhou, China. Hangzhou is a breathtakingly beautiful city as well as the capital of the Zhejiang province in East China. It is almost 1300 Kms or a 2-hour flight from Beijing which also hosted the 1990 Asian Games.

Incidentally, Hangzhou [pronounced Hang-'chow'] will be the 3rd Chinese city (Guangzhou hosted the 2010 edition of the Asian Games) to host the Asian Games and will match South Korea (Seoul 1996, Busan 2002 and Incheon 2014) as the only other nation to achieve this feat. However, quite surprisingly, it is Bangkok, Thailand which has played host the most number of times as it held the Asian Games in 1966, 1970, 1978, 1998.

The XIX edition of the Asian Games will be held between September 10 and September 25, 2022. The opening ceremony will be held at Hangzhou Sports Park Stadium.
