After months of speculation, it is official.....the National Games are coming to Trivandrum!
The Indian Olympic Committee formally announced a few days ago that the 35th National Games will be held in Kerala. With Trivandrum being the capital, it will host most if not all the events, as is customary.
With extensive sports facilities already in place, including football and athletic stadiums, Kerala's largest indoor stadium, two olympic size swimming pools and the top tennis club in the state, Trivandrum's a natural choice.
But the Government is planning a games village which will have sporting facilities such as a brand new main stadium as well as residential and social facilities for the athletes.
Stay tuned for more on this in the days to come!
