The South East Asian Games are a biannual tournament for the nations in South East Asia. Since 1996 it is alternated with the Tiger Cup, in essence for the same group of nations. The first eight editions (up to and including 1975) went under the name of South East Asian Peninsula Games; since 1977 also countries from outside the peninsula (Indonesia, Brunei, Philippines) were admitted, and later also the (formerly) socialist countries (Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam) were (re-)admitted.
The SEA Games currently are an age-restricted (U-23) tournament (unlike the Tiger Cup).
Note that the SEA Games include other sports disciplines as well, among which women's football in some years.
