There are 10 sports events which also served as qualifiers for the finals to be held in 2016 which were held in all three legs of the games. Only athletes from the hosting region are eligible to participate in these qualifying events. (e.g. Athletes from Luzon can only participate in the Luzon leg, and so on). The other events can be participated by athletes from any region. The non-qualifying events were scattered across the three legs with the Luzon leg hosting most number of events.[3]
