HANOI: Malaysia has been selected to host the 34th SEA Games in 2027 by the SEA Games Federation (SEAGF).

Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) president Norza Zakaria said the decision was agreed unanimously at the SEAGF Council meeting held here today.

“We would like to thank the SEAGF Council for the trust and belief in OCM to host the SEA Games.

“OCM will make an appointment to inform Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob and Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu officially upon returning to Malaysia,” he said in a statement here.

It will be the seventh time Malaysia will host the SEA Games, after having hosted the biennial Games in 1965, 1971, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2017.

OCM last year had expressed interest to host the 2027 Games following Brunei’s withdrawal.

The 31st SEA Games, delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, is currently being held in Hanoi, Vietnam. The opening ceremony is tonight and the Games end on May 25.

Cambodia is set to host the Games for the first time ever from May 5-16 next year, while Thailand will be hosting the Games in 2025. - FMT
