Live broadcasts of the Asian Games will be shown at leisure venues across Hong Kong from Saturday so people can cheer on the national and SAR teams, Chief Executive John Lee has announced.
Ahead of Tuesday's Executive Council meeting, he said the Games in Hangzhou will be shown at 36 places managed by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
Lee noted that matches will also be broadcast in malls.
"I also know that some shopping malls have the live broadcasts and they'll broadcast the games at night to support the Hong Kong Night Vibes campaign," Lee said.
"They'll extend opening hours accordingly so that not only can the people support athletes, they can also consume, get entertained and have fun."
Lee said he would head to Hangzhou on Friday to attend the Games' opening ceremony and would also go to the athletes' village and sports grounds to cheer players on.
The CE said the Games will be the biggest sporting extravaganza the nation has hosted since the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China was held.
He said he believes the SAR team will do their best to bring glory to Hong Kong.
