With just two weeks to go to the start of this year’s SEA Games in Singapore, preparations on the island nation are in full swing. The 28th SEA Games is slated to be held from 5 to 16 June 2015 and will see athletes from 11 nations competing in 36 sports and 402 events, including regional sports such as dragon boat, silat, and sepak takraw. Host Singapore is expected to field its largest SEA Games contingent ever and is aiming to secure at least 50 gold medals, a nice number to commemorate the country’s 50th anniversary this year.

Singapore is not new to hosting SEA Games, having previously hosted the games in 1973, 1983, and 1993. This year’s games will be special as it is the first time to be held in the newly rebuilt National Stadium. This venue will host the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as football and athletics events. On May 19 the National Stadium unveiled a new “Eclipse Stabilised Turf” for its football pitch. Last year the venue drew flak when its pitch was found to be falling short of international playing standards while hosting Japan vs Brazil football match. The SEA games will be the crucial test for the new pitch and other facilities of Singapore’s Sports Hub.
