Philippine Olympic Committee first vice president Joey Romasanta earlier confirmed that the POC executive board had passed a resolution accepting the hosting chores for the 2019 Games.

He said the POC would officially communicate the decision to the SEA Games Federation, the policy-making body of the 11-nation regional competition. “It’s very hard to make a projection (budget for the Games) because it will happen four years from now,” said Garcia. “But we have a general idea as to how much it will cost because we are not going to build any large infrastructure.”

Malaysia will host the biennial meet in 2017 with a budget said to be between $180 million (P8.1 billion) and $220 million. Singapore spent about $240 million in hosting the SEA Games last month.

The country hosted the event three times in 1981, 1991 and 2005.
