Development and preparation
Following the host selection announcement, Prime Minister Hun Sen approved the final design of the Games’ main stadium. During a state visit by Hun Sen to Beijing in May 2014, China's leader Xi Jinping (also Party general secretary) promised to fund the construction of the main stadium of the new multi-purpose sports complex on the Satellite City of Phnom Penh in Khan Chroy Jong Va. The 60,000-seat main stadium, which is estimated to cost about $157 million and will be built by a Chinese construction firm, will be completed between 2019 and 2020 with a Chinese grant covering the entire project. A multipurpose arena, the Morodok Techo National Sports Complex will house an Olympic swimming pool, an outdoor football pitch, a running track, tennis courts and dormitories for athletes.
