8th ASEAN Para Games
As a befitting finale of a major year for Singapore sports, December 2015 will see Singapore hosting the 8th ASEAN Para Games. It is history in the making as it will be the first time Singapore hosts the ASEAN Para Games and a multi-sports event for the persons with disabilities of this scale.
The Games expects to welcome about 1300-1500 athletes with disabilities and more than 500 officials. There will be 15 sports featured.
Beyond physical fitness, we believe in the power of sports to strengthen the character, uplift the spirits, and bond the community. The Games will serve as a platform for enhancing inclusiveness, encouraging our people to embrace sports, as well as promoting ASEAN solidarity.
The ASEAN Para Games- a biennial multi-sport event organised by the ASEAN Para Sports Federation (APSF) for athletes with a disability- will be hosted here for the first time in the history of the Games in conjunction with our 50th anniversary of independence.
The eighth biennial Games, expected to host more than 2,000 athletes and officials, will wrap up Singapore’s 50th birthday celebrations. The seven-day multi-sport event will have their competition venues mainly at the Singapore Sports Hub and Kallang areas.
