The Southeast Asian Games is one of the five subregional Games of the Olympic Council of Asia . The others are the Central Asian Games, the East Asian Youth Games, the South Asian Games, and the West Asian Games. The Southeast Asian Games owes its starting points toward the South East Asian Peninsular Games or SEAP Games. On 22 May 1958, delegates from the nations in Southeast Asian Peninsula going to the Asian Games in Tokyo, Japan had a gathering and consented to lay out a games association.

SEAP Games

The SEAP Games was conceptualized by Luang Sukhum Nayaoradit, then, at that point, Vice-President of the Thailand Olympic Committee. The proposed reasoning was that a local game will assist with advancing co-activity, understanding, and relations among nations in the Southeast Asian area.

Six nations, Burma (presently Myanmar), Kampuchea (presently Cambodia), Laos, Malaya (presently Malaysia), Thailand and the Republic of Vietnam were the establishing individuals. These nations consented to hold the Games biennially in June 1959 and the SEAP Games Federation Committee was shaped thereafter.

The principal SEAP Games were held in Bangkok from 12-17 December 1959, with in excess of 527 competitors and authorities from 6 nations; Burma (presently Myanmar), Laos, Malaya, Singapore, South Vietnam and Thailand partook in 12 games.

At the eighth SEAP Games in 1975, the SEAP Federation thought about the consideration of Brunei, Indonesia, and the Philippines. These nations were officially conceded in 1977, that very year when SEAP Federation changed their name toward the Southeast Asian Games Federation, and the games were known as the Southeast Asian Games.

Notwithstanding its area nearer to the Pacific archipelago than the Asian mainland and not being an individual from ASEAN, East Timor was conceded at the 22nd Southeast Asian Games in 2003 Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City. The 2009 Southeast Asian Games was whenever Laos first has at any point facilitated a Southeast Asian Games. Running from 9-18 December, it has additionally honored the 50 years of the Southeast Asian Games, held in Vientiane, Laos.

Each game will not offer over 5% of the all out decoration count, aside from sports, aquatics and shooting. For each game and occasion to be incorporated, at least four nations should partake in it.
