The opening ceremony will take place at 7:00 p.m. (local time), when representatives of the 37 countries and territories that will participate in the oldest regional sports event in the world will participate.

According to local media, the famous American DJ known as Marshmello will make a presentation at the opening ceremony of the event that in this edition shares the organization with the Dominican Republic, a country that will host seven sports.

"The country of volcanoes, perfect waves and an eternal smile awaits you with open arms to enjoy the party of our Central American and Caribbean Games," said the president of the National Sports Institute of El Salvador, Yamil Bukele.

For his part, the Vice Minister of Transportation, Nelson Reyes, informed national media that from 1:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. (local time) all the streets from Alameda Roosevelt to the accesses to the aforementioned stadium will be closed.

However, he specified that those who are going to attend the inauguration of the Games will be able to walk on all roads, with the exception of 43 and 45 south avenues to 6-10 west street.

According to the organizers, more than 5,200 athletes will compete in some 38 sports and 53 different disciplines, in which more than 440 medals will be disputed in 27 venues and 54 venues.

The Central American nation previously hosted the multi-sport event in 1935 and 2002, while the current edition was assumed after Panama's refusal to organize it due to the consequences of Covid-19.
