2018 Asian Games, Energy of Asia

2018 Asian Games, officially known as Pesta Olahraga Asia ke-18, are Asia's regional multi-event sporting events which will be held in Indonesia on 18 August - 2 September 2018, in two cities namely Jakarta and Palembang, as well as several places as masters Supporting houses in the provinces of West Java and Banten.

The number of sports that will be contested is 40 branches, consisting of 32 Olympic sports and 8 non-Olympic sports.

This is the second time Indonesia has hosted an Asian Games event after the IV Asian Games held in Jakarta in 1962. Some of the facilities built for the IV Asian Games will be re-used in this XVIII Asian Games. For the first time in history, the Asian Games will be held in two cities at once.

Indonesia was approved to host the XVIII Asian Games by the Executive Board of the Asian Olympic Council on September 19, 2014. The holding of the XVIII Asian Games which was originally to be held in 2019 was then advanced to 2018 to avoid legislative elections and the Indonesian presidential election which will also be held that year.
