The much-delayed 36th National Games in Goa will be held from March 30 to April 14 next year. Sports Authority of Goa (SAG) Executive Director V M Prabhudesai made the announcement in Panaji yesterday after a meeting with visiting officials of the Indian Olympic Association.  The Games were earlier scheduled to be held next month. 

Prabhudesai said at a media conference that Opening and Closing ceremonies will be held at PJN Stadium, Fatorda. The Opening ceremony will be on March 30 and closing ceremony will be on April 14. 

Prabhudesai said shooting and cycling events will be held in New Delhi as Goa does not have facilities for these two sports.

He said five sports -- Rugby, Wushu, Modern Pentathlon, Lawn Bowl, and Billiards and Snooker -- will be added in the Games programme.
