    Prior formation

    The Far Eastern Championship Games existed previous to the Asian Games, the former mooted in 1912 for a location set between the Empire of Japan, the Philippines, and China. The inaugural Far Eastern Games were held in Manila in 1913 with 6 participating nations. There were ten Far Eastern Games held by 1934. The second Sino-Japanese War in 1934, and Japan's insistence on including the Manchu Empire as a competitor nation in the Games, brought China to announce its withdrawal from participation. The Far Eastern Games scheduled for 1938 were cancelled. The organization was discontinued.WEB, Far Eastern Championship Games,weblink Olympic Council of Asia, 19 November 2014,weblink" title="">weblink 26 February 2014, dead,


    After World War II, sovereignty came to several areas of Asia. Many of these countries sought to exhibit Asian prowess without violence. At the London 1948 Summer Olympics, a conversation started amongst China and the Philippines to restore the idea of the Far Eastern Games. Guru Dutt Sondhi, the Indian International Olympic Committee representative, believed that the restoration of the Far Eastern Games would sufficiently display the spirit of unity and level of achievement taking place in Asian sports. He proposed the idea of a new competition  – which came to be the Asian Games. The Asian Athletic Federation would eventually be formed. A preparatory committee was set up to draft the charter for this new body. On 13 February 1949, the Asian Athletic Federation was formally inaugurated in and New Delhi announced as the inaugural host city to be held in 1950.WEB, 亚运会是从什么时候开始举办的,每几年举办一次?,weblink, 14 August 2010,weblink" title="">weblink 7 September 2013, dead, NEWS, 亚运会的前世今生:前身远东运动会 中国成绩优异,weblink 14 August 2010, Sina, 4 August 2010,weblink" title="">weblink 2 December 2011, live,
