Mizoram Sports minister Robert Romawia Royte on Sunday informed that the state is likely to host National Games in 2024.
“A proposal to host the XXXXI National Games in 2024 was submitted by chief minister Zoramthanga to Indian Olympic Association (IOA) secretary-general Rajeev Mehta on Friday,” said Royte.
“Mehta told the chief minister that Mizoram greatly deserves to host the national games as it is a football-loving state,” Royte added.
The state sports minister further informed that Mehta had promised the CM to make efforts for allowing Mizoram to host the national games in collaboration with the Centre.
“Once a decision to host National Games 2024 is made, the great leap will happen in various sports disciplines,” reported The Morung Express quoting Royte.
He further informed that Indian Olympic Association )IOA) officials would soon visit the state for studying the feasibility of holding the mega sporting event.
