The 18th AUG is drawing closer, and the heads of delegations from member countries of the ASEAN University Sports Council (AUSC) met in Singapore on 29 March 2016 to finalise the details on administration and logistics.
The HOD meeting was chaired by Dr Tan Eng Liang (Chairman, 18th AUG Organising Committee), Mr Seetow Cheng Fave (Chairman, 18th AUG Executive Committee), Dr Anuar Hassan (Outgoing President, AUSC), Dr Abdullah Mohamad Said (Incoming Presidents, AUSC) and Mr Muhamad Mohd Hanif (Secretary-General, AUSC).
Delegations from nine AUSC’s member countries and the members of the AUG’s Organising and Executive committees attended this two-hour long meeting at Kent Vale, National University of Singapore.
AUSC delegates discussed and agreed to administrative issues such as the accreditation of athletes and officials, media outreach, accommodation and transportation for national teams, as well as deadlines for national committees to submit fee payments.
Mr Cheng Fave also updated the delegates on the games calendar and what participants can look forward to in Singapore during the games. For example, a three-day carnival will be held at the National Institute of Education from 10-12 July where athletes will be able to meet and socialise. In addition to this, the organisers will also arrange heritage trips for foreign athletes to explore the various unique districts of Singapore.
