This event has now finished
From Saturday, August 19 2017 to Thursday, August 31 2017
For the sixth time in its history, Kuala Lumpur is once again hosting the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), after sixteen years. This symbolic event coincides with Malaysia's 60th year of independence which will be celebrated in 2017. Eleven countries will compete in forty or so sports ranging from football to Wushu (a modern form of Chinese martial arts) during the Games. Singapore is the current title holder, topping the medal table in 2015 when it hosted the Games (269 medals). We particularly recommend Sepak Takraw, a very exciting form of kick volleyball which is very popular in southern Asia.
