Regina will play host to the 2014 North American Indigenous Games.

The bid was put in by the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, M├ętis Nation of Saskatchewan, the province and the city.

The two-week event attracts up to 10,000 athletes, coaches, and fans.

The budget for the games is $10.35 million, with the province and Sport Canada each contributing $3.5 million.

The City of Regina is contributing $1.1 million. The rest will be raised through fees, sponsorships and fundraising.

Regina's bid won out over several other communities, including London, Ont. and Halifax, the province said in a news release.

The last time the event was hosted in Saskatchewan was 1993, when it was held in Prince Albert.
