SEA Games 31 opening ceremony expected to wow spectators

SEA Games 31’s opening ceremony on May 12 will depict a beautiful and hospitable Vietnam that is striving, together with other ASEAN countries, to become even stronger following COVID-19.

A highlight of the ceremony will be the use of state-of-the-art technologies, including mapping, augmented reality, and extended reality, among others.

Notably, the symbols of the 40 sports held at the Games will be displayed in the style of Vietnam’s traditional Dong Ho folk painting art.

The final session of the ceremony has the theme “Shining Southeast Asia”, and reflects the solidarity and friendship between Vietnam and other ASEAN countries forming a strong regional community and a rising role for the bloc on the world stage.

Mapping, augmented reality, and extended reality are the latest in visual technologies and have been used at major sporting events worldwide in recent times.
