Riyadh will host the 2034 Asian Games, the Olympic Council of Asia’s general assembly decided on Wednesday.

Doha meanwhile will host the 2030 edition of the Games.

The OCA reached a deal to vote on the 2030 but to give the other candidate the 2034 event.

“That means no winner, no loser,” OCA president Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah of Kuwait said. “Thank you, Asia, for solidarity and coordination.”

The vote on Wednesday was repeatedly delayed by problems with the electronic voting system with many delegates taking part remotely amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In the hall, 26 delegates were given paper ballots and 19 voted remotely.
