Meghalaya will host the 2022 National Games, which is coinciding with its 50 years of statehood. The Meghalaya State Olympic Association president John F Kharshiing has stated that the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has accepted Meghalaya’s bid to host the prestigious games following the successful South Asian Games, which was co-hosted by Shillong and Guwahati in 2016. Meghalaya had pledged Rs. 5 crore as the bid amount for the game. Till date, only two states in the North-East have hosted the National Games – Manipur in 1999 and Assam in 2007.
