The Asian Beach Games Village, or Yasha village, which is designed to host athletes from Asian countries who will take part in the intercontinental event from Nov 28 to Dec 6, will open with a comprehensive stadium before Sept 30, according to reports from Sanya Daily.

The stadium at Sanya International Sports Industrial Park is now 65 percent finished, while the roof-sealing for Yasha village is scheduled to be carried out by the end of May.

The construction time for the stadium is only 14 months. The project has a tight schedule and high standards, and we must rush to meet the schedule and complete the construction tasks according to the project nodes and quality requirements, said Wang Yang, project manager for the stadium construction.

The entire stadium houses 45,000 seats, which makes it the stadium with the biggest seating capacity in Hainan province. Its design includes an in-field acousto-optic system, which is fully planned and constructed with reference to national professional standards. After completion, it can host China's highest-level competitions and international events, as well as meet high-level live broadcast standards.

The Yasha Village project has a total of 14 buildings, each with 18 floors. Currently, 15 floors have been constructed on the ground and the whole project will be fully capped at the end of May, according to Sun Qigang, person-in-charge of the project.


We are simultaneously promoting the construction of decoration and power distribution facilities in the basement to ensure that the completion of the tasks are on schedule, added Sun.

The tropical city held a special ceremony at Wuzhizhou Island tourism zone on May 12 to mark the 200 day countdown of the 6th Asian Beach Games. The special ceremony marks the beginning of the full-speed sprint period for the event's preparatory work.
