The provincial government of Bali will budget Rp. 2 trillion (US$164 million) to serve as host for the 20th National Sporting Week (PON 2020).

"This amount will the taken from the provincial budget. This will be done in installments over time because the preparations cannot be completed in a single financial year," explained the deputy-governor for Bali, Ketut Sudikerta on Thursday, February 13, 2014.

Sudikerta, quoted by NusaBali, told the press that he was confident that hosting PON in Bali would bring many benefits to the tourist island. "If Bali is chosen (as PON host) there will be additional funding from the Central Government to undertake repairs and upgrades of sporting venues," he said.

One of the projects included in the Rp. 2 trillion expenditures will be for the construction of an international standard stadium at Pecatu in Jimbaran. The stadium project will commence in 2015 with physical construction to start in 2017.

Sudikerta continued, "In addition to the stadium, we will also be undertaking repairs at all sporting venues to be used for PON XX in 2020."

The deputy governor acknowledged that other provinces in Indonesia might also enter the race to be selected as host for the 2020 games.

Current plans are to include wide areas of Bali in hosting the games by conducting horse races in Jembrana, sepak takraw in Buleleng and water sports in Tabanan.

An advance inspection team comprised of 18 people arrived in Bali on February 13, 2014 to visit proposed sporting venues in Bali.

The PON Games are held once every four years.

The 2016 games will take place in Bandung, West Java.
