2022 National Games: History

  • Prior to independence, the All India Olympic Committee organized the first National Games in Lahore in 1924.
  • At the time, it was referred to as the “All India Olympic Games.”
  • The Games have been held four times since 1924, with the first three in Lahore and the most recent in Allahabad.
  • In 1940, the event’s name was changed to the “National Games,” with Mumbai serving as the venue.
  • Lucknow hosted the first National Games following independence in 1948.
  • The IOA’s action in 1985 was spurred by what seemed to be a fall in the Games’ popularity following their first upswing.
  • They decided to reorganize the Games according to Olympic ideals in order to draw in more viewers. Since then, more than 5000 athletes have participated in the Games.
