BOA plans to hold the event at the National Sports Council (NSC) auditorium. Miku also said that BOA will be busy in June as there will be Olympic Day run on June 23. The AGM could also be held in June for the first time in the history of Bangladesh Olympic Association. A total of 26 records were set at the 8th Bangladesh Games in swimming, shooting, athletics, archery and weightlifting disciplines.
