King's Cup Sepaktakraw World Championship
The King's Cup Sepaktakraw World Championship is a sepak takraw team event which is considered to be the most prestigious tournament in the sport as most top national teams compete in this annual event. The King's Cup is dedicated to His Majesty the King of Thailand. Three regus form a team and winning point is achieved once a team has the majority of two regu victories out of the three regus.
The King's Cup tournament was first held in 1987 in Bangkok Thailand where Malaysia emerged the inaugural champions. Malaysia emerged champions again in 1988  and the rest of the other editions saw Thailand as champions. The King's Cup tournament is seen by some especially the Malaysians as being unfair because it is never held outside of Thailand hence always giving the host nation an obvious upper hand and that the Asian Games is a fairer ground of competition.
