Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium
Asian Games Jakarta-Palembang 2018 is a pan-Asian multi-sport event scheduled to be held in Indonesia. For the first time, the Asian Games are being co-hosted in two cities; the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, and Palembang, the capital of the Indonesian province of South Sumatra, with Jakarta hosting the Games for the second time since 1962. Events will be held in and around the two cities, including venues in the provinces of Banten and West Java which surround Jakarta. The opening and closing ceremonies will be held in Jakarta. Hanoi, Vietnam was originally chosen as the host but withdrew due to financial considerations.[ As the Asiad's top venue — hosting football, basketball, tennis, volleyball, and archery — the 55-year-old Gelora Bung Karno will be under intense scrutiny. But despite the fast-approaching deadline, the man responsible for upgrading the complex's main stadium, Wikrama Wardana, recently told AFP there was still plenty of time to complete the job. "We are going to do our best to finish it within the timeframe. Once the contract has ended, there will be enough time to prepare for the Asian Games more thoroughly," Wardana said at the arena. Indonesia has faced a race against time to be ready for the 18th Asian Games after original hosts Vietnam withdrew in 2014 due to financial problems, meaning the country has only had four years to prepare instead of the usual six.
