SEA Games History The SEA Games originated from the SEAP (South East Asian Peninsular) Games which were held first in Thailand in 1959. When the first SEAP Games was held in Bangkok in 1959, only six countries participated, namely Laos, Malaysia, Burma (Myanmar), Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand Laung Sukhumnaipradit, the then Vice President of the Olympic Committee, had been trying to begin a SEAP Games since 1957. He believed that a regional sports event, similar to the Asian Games or the Olympic Games, will help promote cooperation, understanding and relations among countries in the region. His efforts were rewarded after two years. The name SEAP Games was used up to 1975. Thailand had been the host country three times. The SEAP Games Federation Conmmittee accepted Indonesia and the Philippines. Then the name was changed to SEA Games. Later on Indonesia, the Philippines and Brunei joined the Games which was renamed SEA Games at its 9th meet in Malaysia in 1977. The name has since been officially adopted and the Games has become the most important sports event of the region. Memberships of SEA Games have increased to ten with Cambodia being the last number.
