SEA Games opening ceremony to begin

The opening ceremony of SEA Games 31 will begin 8 p.m. Thursday in Hanoi’s My Dinh Stadium with numerous art performances.

The ceremony will be split into three parts. The first one, titled “Friendly Vietnam”, will see a countdown event along with mapping and virtual graphic shows.

The second part, “Strong Southeast Asia”, will showcase the strength of ASEAN communities and include art performances.

The third part, titled “Shining Southeast Asia”, will include more performances and the torch relay ceremony, representing the collaboration and unity between Vietnam and other ASEAN countries to build a strong community on the global stage.

There would be a closing ceremony at the end with a musical performance of the official SEA Games 31 song “Let’s Shine”.

Just a few hours before the opening ceremony, a rain in Hanoi drenched the My Dinh Stadium wet, requiring workers and volunteer to clean them all up.

This would be the second time Vietnam hosts a SEA Games, the first one in 2003. Due to impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Games had to be postponed by half a year from its original date in December 2021.

Several tournaments of the Games have already gone underway even before the opening ceremony, including both men’s and women’s football, diving, rowing, kurash and pencak silat.

Vietnam has snatched 32 medals so far, including 17 gold, seven silver and 15 bronze, putting the country at the top of the medal tally.

Matches and tournaments of 39 sports will take place across 12 northern Vietnam localities.
