Harbin to host 2025 Asian Winter Games

Harbin, capital of northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province, has won its bid to host the 2025 Asian Winter Games, the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) announced on Saturday. 

The OCA made the decision at its 42nd Congress held in Bangkok, Thailand.

It will be the second time Harbin hosts the Asian Winter Games – the first was in 1996 – and the third time the regional games are held in a Chinese city, the other being in Changchun, northeast China’s Jilin Province, in 2007.

Harbin’s successful bid came after Beijing successfully hosted the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.

Japan’s Sapporo and Obihiro held the last Asian Winter Games, in 2017.

The ninth Asian Winter Games will be held from March 15 to 24, 2025 in Harbin.
