Highlights of the opening ceremony of the Asian Games:
The opening ceremony is coming soon, and the venue has stepped up its commissioning
In recent years, Jakarta has held many regional international sports events, so all kinds of sports facilities are relatively complete. Most of the venues of this Asian Games are also based on the renovation and reconstruction of the old venues.
Among these venues, there are mainly two venues, the No. 1 venue group is near the pengano Sports Center, with 20 competition venues and 9 training venues. The No. 2 venue cluster is dominated by Jakarta International Exhibition Center, with 21 competition venues and 8 training venues.
Pungano sports center is the main venue of the fourth Asian Games held in Jakarta in 1962. It will also undertake the opening and closing ceremonies of the games. Before the games, the venue has been updated with about 76000 individual seats.
However, some venues are not fully ready, and the final commissioning is being stepped up. It is reported that due to the reasons of material, technology and arrangement, the Taekwondo Hall of Jakarta Convention Center and the martial arts hall of Jakarta National Exhibition Center are carrying out the final lighting and venue debugging, among which the latter is the competition venue that may produce the first gold medal of this competition.
