[edit] Bidding cities

Four cities were bidding for this event at the early days of March 2004. They were Amman, Guangzhou, Kuala Lumpur and Seoul. However, Seoul withdrew after considering the short span of time between the 2002 (in Busan, South Korea) and the 2010 event. <ref>Korea withdrew from 2010 Asian Games bidding</ref> With the withdrawal of Amman, soon after Seoul, Kuala Lumpur also quit the bid after the country's Sports Minister boycotted for the high cost of hosting the games. <ref>Kuala Lumpur quits, GZ becomes only bidding city</ref> <ref>Kuala Lumpur drops Asian Games bid</ref> With Guangzhou left, the OCA annouced the city won the bid to host the Asian Games in July 2004. <ref>Guangzhou wins Asiad bid</ref>
