The South Asian Games 2019, the 13th edition of the competition is set to commence from 1st December and will go on until 10th December 2019 at Kathmandu-Pokhara, Nepal. This is the third time Nepal will be hosting the event, as Nepal also hosted the event first in 1984 and then in 1999.

Earlier this year, the South Asian Games were scheduled to begin on 9th March, until the competition was rescheduled at the end of an Olympic Council Executive Board meeting held in Bangkok.

The previous edition of the South Asian Games event was held in Guwahati and Shillong, back in 2016 and in this edition of the competition, apart from hosts Nepal, the other seven countries participating will be India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

India have a total of 1100 gold medals, ahead of Pakistan's 329 gold medals in the event history thus far and will certainly come into the tournament as the favourites to finish with the top honours.

The event is set to host 30 games, with Paragliding set to make a debut in SAG 2019. Golf and Karate have been added by the hosts, while Cricket will be returning after eight long years. Paragliding and Wushu are also two exciting games that will be a part of this edition.
