Major accommodation shortage faces SEA Games

Major accommodation shortage faces SEA Games

Indonesia’s organising efforts for the Southeast Asian Games 2011 continue to nose dive as latest reports indicate a severe accommodation shortage. Only a week ago organising officials admitted that work is continuing on five major sporting venues and is unlikely to be complete in time for the start of the games. Now, latest reports from the Jakarta Globe say the committee has drafted in three navy vessels to accommodate athletes and team staff during the competition. The Athletes’ Village only has accommodation for 2,000 people while Palembang has just 4,500 hotel rooms. With nearly 16,000 team members expected in Indonesia for the event, the 800 beds aboard navy ships, though only “a last resort”, will probably be required.
