Afro-Asian Games

First Event 2003 Afro-Asian Games
Occur every every four years (expected)
Last Event Yet to be held (2nd Afro-Asian Games in Algiers)
Purpose Multi sport event for nations of the Asian and African continents

The Afro-Asian Games are a series of inter-continental multi-sport competitions, held between athletes from Asia and Africa. These Games are one-of-a-kind, since no other sporting competition brings athletes from these two continents together for one event, excluding the Olympic Games. These Games are supposed to be held once every four years. They are jointly supervised by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), and the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA).

The Afro-Asian Games witness the participation of Asian and African National Olympic Committees (NOCs), along with a few Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) nations. The Inaugral Afro-Asian Games were held in 2003 in Hyderabad, India. The second Games were set to take place in Algiers, Algeria in 2007. But, the Games were indefinitely postponed.
