Organisation

Bid

On July 1, 2004, The Guangzhou was awarded the right to host the Games; the decision was announced in Doha, Qatar.[1] This decision came after several other cities withdrew due to separate reasons. Seoul withdrew after considering the short span of time between 2002 and 2010, because South Korea hosted the 2002 Games eight years before in Busan.[2] Kuala Lumpur was forced to withdraw its bid after it was boycotted by the cabinet due to the high cost of hosting the Games, leaving Guangzhou as the sole bidder.[3][4]
