The Asian Indoor Games was a multi-sport event that was contested every two years among athletes representing countries from Asia. The games were regulated by the Olympic Council of Asia. The first games were held in 2005 in Bangkok, Thailand.

The competition consisted of indoor sports with TV broadcasting potential, a number of which are not included in the Asian Games and Winter Asian Games Programs and are not Olympic sports. The sports program included electronic sports, extreme sports, aerobics, acrobatics, indoor athletics, dance sports, futsal, inline hockey, fin swimming, and 25 metres short course swimming. The 2007 Asian Indoor Games in Macau also saw the first major test of FIBA 33, a formalized version of three-on-three basketball that saw its official worldwide debut at the 2010 Youth Olympics.[1] FIBA 33 was also contested in the 2009 Games.

Doha was given the rights to hold the fourth edition scheduled for 2011, but a year later, in June 2008, the Qatar Olympic Committee officially withdrew as host citing "unforeseen circumstances".[2] In response the OCA said that 2009 Asian Indoor Games would be the last edition of the games. The Asian Indoor Games and Asian Martial Arts Games will combine, becoming the quadrennial Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games. The inaugural event was held in Incheon, Korea in 2013.
