The Asian Games, also known as Asiad, is a Pancontinental multi-sport event held every four years among athletes from all over Asia. The Games were regulated by the Asian Games Federation (AGF) from the first Games in New Delhi, India, until the 1978 Games. Since the 1982 Games they have been organised by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), after the breakup of the Asian Games Federation. The Games are recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and are described as the second largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games.

In its history, nine nations have hosted the Asian Games. Forty-six nations have participated in the Games, including Israel, which was excluded from the Games after their last participation in 1974.

The last Games was held in Guangzhou, China from 12 November to 27 November 2010. The next Games will be held inIncheon, South Korea from 19 September to 4 October 2014.

The 2014 Games is scheduled to feature the 28 Olympic sports which will be contested at the 2016 Summer Olympics. In addition, eight non-Olympic sports will be featured: baseball, ten-pin bowling, cricket, kabaddi, karate, sepak takraw, squash and wushu. The list was finalised on December 9, 2010 at the OCA’s executive board meeting in Muscat, Oman. This resulted in six other sports: roller sport, board games (chess, go, xiangqi), cue sports, softball, dance sport and dragon boat, which were held in previous Games being dropped from the list. The list was approved on July 13, 2011 during the 30th annual general assembly in Tokyo as softball incorporated with baseball as one sport while soft tennis is under the discipline of tennis. For the first time, compound archery, mixed relay triathlon, judo team events were introduced.

The changes in the non-Olympic sports featured at the Asian Games were influenced by discussions with organizers, who had suggested the removal of cricket from the program because they felt too few countries played it, and because they lacked infrastructure to host it. However, the OCA disputed the proposed removal of cricket, citing its popularity and viewer interest.
