The host of the 26th SEA Games, Indonesia, has lined up 37 sports for the biennial meet which is scheduled for November next year.

Indonesia Olympic Committee (KOI) in its website, confirmed that of the 37 sports, 22 would be Olympic events and the other 15 non-Olympic events.

“During our presentation at the Asian Games Federation meeting, we proposed that the SEA Games be held on Nov 11, 2011. I think it’ll be nice if it’s written as 11/11/11,” KOI secretary-general Arie Ariotedjo was reported as saying in the website.

Nevertheless, he said the final date for the meet would be finalised by the SEA Games Federation at its meeting in April.

The 26th SEA Games in Indonesia would be held in four provinces namely Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang and Palembang.

Palembang will be hosting football, wrestling, gymnastic, wushu, powerlifting, weightlifting, aquatic, wall climbing and track and field events, while Semarang would be the venue for archery, boxing, snooker/billiard, sepak takraw, shooting, roller skating and the other paralympic events.
