The decision to award the host job to Sarawak which last hosted the SUKMA in 1990, was unanimous by the SUKMA Supreme Council.

According to Khairy, the decision was also in line with the Prime Ministers instruction that more sporting events be held in both Sabah and Sarawak.

The last time Sarawak hosted SUKMA was in 1990. Next years SUKMA will be held in Perlis.
