Indonesia will certainly participate in the 2022 Islamic Solidarity Games which will be held in Konya, Turkey in August.

This certainty came after the Turkey Islamic Solidarity Games Organizing Committee (TISGOC) ensured that all preparations for the 2021 Konya Islamic Solidarity Games (ISG) went smoothly.
All venues have been completed and are ready to be used for the OIC member countries' solidarity sporting event which will be opened from 9 to 18 August.

This was stated by the Executive Committee of the Indonesian Olympic Committee (NOC Indonesia) Rafiq Hakim Radinal who was present at the second ISG Chefs de Mission (CdM) Meeting which took place on 1-6 July. Rafiq, who was accompanied by NOC Relations Diana Roeroe and General Affair Permadi, actively coordinated with TISGOC to ensure smooth participation of Indonesia.

"TISGOC's response is very positive, especially when they mentioned that Indonesia is the best NOC because the data for each department is ready," continued Rafiq.

Rafiq explained that TISGOC has also made drawings for 3 team sports, namely handball, volleyball and soccer. Of these three sports, Indonesia only fielded the women's volleyball team. Based on the drawing, continued Rafiq, Indonesian women's volleyball occupies Group A with Uzbekistan, Turkey and Iran. While Group B consists of Afghanistan, Senegal, Cameroon, and Azerbaijan. "NOC Indonesia's commitment is to make ISG a place of solidarity as a target between the achievements of the SEA Games 2023 Cambodia and the 2022 Asian Games Hangzhou," said Rafiq.

All those who leave are also required to include a vaccine certificate," concluded Rafiq.
