It’s our immense pleasure and pride to express gratitude and render a warm welcome to all the delegates of the participating nations in South Asian Games 2019 happening in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Janakpur, Nepal from December 1 to December 10, 2019.

As Nepal is set to host its third SAG event in its 29 years history, it’s obvious that it will aid in promoting Visit Nepal 2020. It will also help to strengthen the fraternity and camaraderie among SAARC countries. Nepal is hosting South Asian Games 2019 in association with National Sports Council and I am extremely thrilled and privileged to get this marvelous opportunity to witness this mega event which can be contemplated as a milestone for the development of Nepal. I am confident that we will witness energetic and enthusiastic performances of the highest quality over the course of this mega event. I encourage all to make the most of this wonderful occasion to showcase athletic talent, sportsmanship and spirit of amity.

With the joint efforts and contribution of committee members and well wishers, this event has come to embellish into this position today and for that, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Nepal Olympic Committee, National Sports Council, Ministry of Youth and Sports and to everyone associated with the event. I wish this event a grand success and hope that all the participants coming to Pokhara from different countries will have a pleasant stay here.

Message from Coordinator,

Gandaki Province, Pokhara Nepal

Honourable Minister Nara Devi Pun Magar

First of all, on behalf of the Ministry of Social Development as well as Coordination and Facilitation Committee Gandaki Province, Pokhara, I take this opportunity to welcome all distinguished guest, sportspersons, sisters and brothers from SAARC countries on the occasion of 13 th South Asian Games (SAG) to be held in Kathmandu and Pokhara from 1-10 December, 2019. The Ministry express its sincere thanks and gratitude to the Government of Nepal for giving this opportunity to host this important international sports event in this beautiful city Pokhara. Out of twenty-seven games, eight different games are going to be held in Pokhara.

Sports has to be an essential and important part of an individual’s life. All round development of the personality is incomplete without sports. Sportsmanship is a philosophy of life harmonizing in a balanced whole the qualities of endurance, will and mind. Let us play for peace, let us play for progress and let us play for prosperity.

I am sure that as the game proceed, this feeling of friendship trust and understanding will convert itself not only into sporting opportunities but also into business and tourism opportunities as well.

Once again I welcome our friends from SAARC countries. I wish all of you a happy and pleasant stay in Pokhara.

About South Asian Game

The South Asian Games (SAF Games, SAG, or SA games, and formerly known as South Asian Federation Games) are a biennial multi-sport event held among the athletes from South Asia. The governing body of these games is South Asia Olympic Council (SAOC), formed in 1983. At present, SAG are joined by seven members namely Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

The first South Asian Games were hosted by Kathmandu, Nepal in 1984. From 1984 to 1987 they were held every year except 1986, as it was a year of Commonwealth Games and Asian Games. From 1987 onwards, they have been held every two years except for some occasions. In 2004, it was decided in the 32nd meeting of South Asian Sports Council to rename the games from South Asian Federation Games to South Asian Games as the officials believed the word Federation was diminishing the emphasis on event and acting as a barrier in attracting crowd. These Games are often hyped as the South Asian version of Olympic Games. The XII South Asian Games was held at Guwahati and Shillong from 5 February to 16 February 2016.
