  1. OCA looks ahead to high-tech, legacy-focused Asian Games 2018




    The Director General of the Olympic Council of Asia, Mr Husain Al Musallam, is looking forward to a high-tech Asian Games in Indonesia in 2018 – and a games that will leave a lasting legacy for co-host cities Jakarta and Palembang.

    Speaking after the 5th OCA Coordination Committee meeting at the Mulia Hotel in Jakarta on Wednesday, Mr Al Musallam said the OCA’s 18th Asian Games would contribute to the development of the country in general.

    “We have had a very successful meeting and received firm assurances from three leading ministries in the central government that Indonesia fully supports the 18th Asian Games in 2018,” said Mr Al Musallam.

    “The government showed a high level of commitment to secure the success of the Asian Games. Three high-level ministries - finance, public works and human development and culture - gave their assurance and, moreover, their support of the citizens of Indonesia and the parliament, especially since it will be 56 years since Jakarta last hosted our Asian Games in 1962.”

    Mr Al Musallam said the OCA expected a high-tech Asian Games due to the new technology available in 2018, as well as an event that will leave a strong legacy.

    “We can see the Asian Games integrate with the city of Jakarta with a new airport terminal, a new ring road and Mass Railway Transport system. In addition to this, all the sports venues in Jakarta and Palembang are being renewed to the highest levels of the International Federations,” he said.

    “The OCA expects 11,000 athletes to participate in the 18th Asian Games and 5,500 team officials – a total of 16,500 participants from our National Olympic Committees.

    “The volunteer programme will start soon and produce 40,000 volunteers to be on duty during the Games.

    “We are confident that Indonesia has the manpower, technology and experience to organise a successful Asian Games, and we will emphasise how to put all this together for a more international look.”

    The OCA Director General summed up a number of points from the 5th OCA CC meeting:


    We have finalised 41 sports with the option of finding a solution for surfing, which will be in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The OCA wants to prepare the Asian surfers to be ready in terms of experience and to improve their level. We are studying minor technical issues with the International Surfing Federation and organising committee, especially concerning the venue and logistics involved.


    We are at an advanced stage and soon the contracts will be signed for all three elements which are very important for the success of the Asian Games.


    We are satisfied overall, but there is still a worry about traffic because 20 million people are on the move every day in Jakarta city.


    The work has already started and in both cities, Jakarta and Palembang, and will be finished at the end of 2017.


    The competition venues in Palembang are already there and are ready. In Jakarta they are in progress and the target will be November 2017. The test events are set for November 2017.


    The new terminal at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Jakarta has been completed and will be in operation soon. The OCA is satisfied with the air traffic control plan during the Asian Games as Jakarta is a very busy airport with 50 million passengers every year.


    The new Jakarta ring road and highway has been completed and work is in progress on the Mass Railway Transport line connecting the airport to the Athletes’ Village at Kemayoran. We expect this service to be completed by March 2018.


    The co-host city – capital of South Sumatra – already has an Athletes’ Village and the expansion work is nearly complete. The roads are complete, the venues are complete. The organising committee will provide a certain number of free air flights to National Olympic Committees who have teams there on a daily basis during the games for the Chef de Mission and other officials.


    The organising committee has confirmed that they will shoulder the cost of all the equipment internationally and locally for all participants.

    *The OCA’s 18th Asian Games will run from August 18 to September 2, 2018.

  3. Ssangyong to build 2018 Asian Games Information System


    Jakarta, Indonesia, November 17, 2016: The Olympic Council of Asia signed a three-party Master Service Agreement with the Indonesian Asian Games Organising Committee (INASGOC) and Ssangyong Information and Communications Corp. (SICC) in Jakarta on Thursday.

    The agreement is for Ssangyong to build the Asian Games Information System (AGIS) for the OCA’s 18th Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang in 2018.

    The integrated information service will include the competition schedule, venues, results, new records, athlete profiles, transportation and other data which is vital for the smooth operation of a major international multi-sport event.

    “Cooperation between the OCA and Ssangyong is one of the requirements to make the 18th Asian Games Jakarta-Palembang 2018 a big success,” said Anton Subowo, on behalf of INASGOC.

    “We are confident that, with this cooperation, the 2018 Asian Games will be managed by experienced people.”

    The AGIS will be the brains of the 2018 Asian Games containing all the important information for athletes, National Olympic Committees, media and public.

    Ssangyong CEO Seung-Gi Kim said: “We welcome the cooperation with INASGOC to support a successful Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games 2018.

    “We guarantee that the information system we will provide for the 2018 Asian Games will be equal, if not better, than that for the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon because we will apply the latest technology.”

    Jakarta International Velodrome
    -> http://www.coxarchitecture.com.au/project/jakarta-international-velodrome/


    Current Progress...

    In association with BKM Indonesia
    Client: ES Global Ltd
    Project Status: In Progress, 2015-Current
    Estimated Completion: June 2018
    Key Consultants: Mott MacDonald
    Contractor / Builder: Wika
    Cost: $51,000,000

    The Jakarta International Velodrome will be a vibrant and dynamic stadium, developed primarily as a key venue for the 2018 Asian Games. The project will add vitality to the immediate precinct for years to come through the provision of legacy opportunities inherent in the siting and planning of the facility. The site is located within a broader sports precinct and is arranged to suit a master planned experience with a focus on public plaza spaces for large spectator movements.

    The design combines a series of earth berms that contribute to the public arrival sequence. The Velodrome has a membrane roof and wall cladding above the concourse level, which includes translucent elements to allow natural daylight into the building whilst transforming the building into a glowing lantern in the evening.

    The building is a permanent facility, however the roof technology is based on our construction partner ES Global Ltd’s kit of modular structural parts, most commonly used in their temporary sports and event buildings.

    The building will be used for cycling competition and training as well as for events and court sports on the infield, including the popular Futsal.

    This project follows COX’s recently completed Indonesia Convention and Exhibition Centre, which is also an Asian Games Venue, as well as the Queensland State Velodrome for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The recent work in velodromes continues COX Sport’s demonstrated performance spanning over 40 years, beginning with Canberra’s Bruce Stadium.

  5. I guess so, I heard from INASGOC, next year, the will have a big plan for Marketing & Promotion...



    Bridge added to 2018 Asian Games programme but skateboarding and surfing set to miss out

    Surfing and skateboarding are set to be left off the Jakarta and Palambang 2018 Asian Games programme despite their recently gained Olympic status - but cricket and bridge are set to feature.

    Indonesian organisers were warned by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) that they can afford no more delays with less than two years to go before the Games are due to begin.

    A total of 39 full medal sports were proposed during a presentation given here at today's OCA Executive Committee meeting. This includes the 28 permanent Olympic sports plus three of those added to the Tokyo 2020 programme last month, baseball and softball, karate and sport climbing. Eight non-Olympic sports have also been planned, including bowling, cricket, kabaddi and martial arts - consisting of pencat silat, tanding, wushu, kurash, ju jitsu and sambo - sepak takraw. Squash, bridge and jet ski and paragliding, listed as mechanical sports, complete the programme.

    But skateboarding and surfing are not currently envisaged due to the lack of an appropriate venue. There is no obvious surfing venue in either of the co-cities - and organisers are reluctant to utilise an alternative location such as Bali. OCA director general Husain Al-Musallam claimed today that, while it would be good to use the event as a test event for Tokyo 2020, organisers are not under any obligation to add either sport.

    To ensure the continuity and stability and to develop the Asian Games and Asian athletes, the OCA has finalised the calendar to 2026 so they are clear for the next 10 years,” said Mr Al Musallam.

    Asian Games: Aichi-Nagoya bid to host 2026 becomes official

    TOKYO, Sept. 21, Kyodo

    The Japanese Olympic Committee said Wednesday it has received a report from the Aichi prefectural and Nagoya municipal governments confirming their agreement to seek to co-host the 2026 Asian Games.

    With the submission of the document under the names of Aichi Gov. Hideaki Omura and Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura, the two local governments have formally become Japan's candidate site for the regional version of the Summer Olympics.


    The JOC last week approved Aichi and Nagoya as the country's joint candidate hosts, on condition they submit an official document attesting that they agree on the co-hosting scheme before the Olympic Council of Asia's General Assembly meets Sunday in Danang, Vietnam to decide on the 2026 host.

    Aichi and Nagoya are expected to be the only ones bidding.

    Please give a chance to another West Asian, or South East Asian, etc...
