Pan Arab Games

The Arab Games are a regional multi-sport event held between nations from the Arab World. They are organised by the Union of Arab National Olympic Committees (22 NOCs).

The first Games took place in 1953 in Alexandria, Egypt. Intended to be held every four years since, political turmoil as well as financial difficulties have made the event an unstable one.

  • Equestrian disciplines started in 1957
  • Women were first allowed to compete in 1985
  • 36 sports were presented in the Pan Arab Games history
