|First event||2003 Afro-Asian Games|
|Occur every||four years|
|Last event||2003 Afro-Asian Games|
|Purpose||Multi sport event for nations of the Asian and African continents|
The Afro-Asian Games were the series of inter-continental multi-sport competitions, held between athletes from Asia and Africa. These Games are one-of-a-kind, since no other sporting competition brings athletes from these two continents together for one event, excluding the Olympic Games. These Games are supposed to be held once every four years. They are jointly supervised by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), and the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA).
The Afro-Asian Games witness the participation of Asian and African National Olympic Committees (NOCs), along with a few Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) nations. The Inaugural Afro-Asian Games were held in 2003 in Hyderabad, India. The second Games were set to take place in Algiers, Algeria in 2007. However, the Games were indefinitely postponed because "Asians failed to line up the Asian Games gold medalists". In other words, the games were pronounced as defunct.
