The 1st Asia Pacific Masters Games (APMG) in Penang, Malaysia on 7-15 September 2018 is the first-ever masters multi-sport event in Asia.

An estimated 10,000 participants from the Asia Pacific region are expected to participate in nine days of sporting challenge and excitement. It is a fantastic opportunity for those who love sport – an event featuring 22 sports played in one of South East Asia’s top island destination.

The Asia Pacific Masters Games is a global festival of sport for participants of eligible ages and all capabilities. There is no qualifying or selection process involved.

You just need to be of a certain age in your chosen sport. On average, the minimum age required to participate is 30 years old.

The APMG 2018 features 22 sports. Athletes compete in their own age group and category – competitive, recreational or social. So the event is for everyone – regardless if you are a serious competitor or joining for fun.

Just like the Olympics, there are opening and closing ceremonies, and medals are awarded for the podium finishers in all events.

APMG Olympic Dream Howei

True to its tagline “Beyond the Games”, APMG 2018 is more than just a sporting event. It will be an avenue to foster friendship, goodwill and a chance to propel the growth of masters sports, especially in the Asian region.

Between play, there’s the chance to soak up the vibe of Penang, voted No. 2 in CNN’s list of Must-Visit Travel Destinations in the World 2017. Dubbed the “Pearl of the Orient”, Penang has a little something for everybody.
