2010 National Games in Trivandrum

After months of speculation, it is official.....the National Games are coming to Trivandrum!

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!


  1. This is an awesome news!

    Infra development will be on war footage now.


  2. can govt build a stadium and a games village in such short notice?...also wer it will be?

  3. woow...thts nice to hear..
    so we can see more new son the developmental side connected to the national games..

  4. Idea - The 2009-2010 Games will probably be held only in 2010, which leaves almost 2 years for development of the facilities. Using modern technology, it will be possible to complete work on stadiums and residential complexes by that.

    GoK is looking at various options for locating the Games Village. One is within Technocity, another is land close to it.

    Stay tuned!

  5. Great news Indeed..
    I think Govt is planning to allocate 35 acres near Technocity for the games village..

    Anyway this will be agreat boost for the infrastructure development of Trivandrum.


Thanks for your comment, I will take a look at it and put it up at the earliest.
