The 31st edition of the Southeast Asian Games features 40 sports across 526 events and relies on the participation of 5,467 athletes from 11 different countries.

The Organizing Committee for the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 21) has declared the details of the schedule and venues of competitions for the regional biggest sports event held in Vietnam this month.

Almost 5,100 athletes from 11 nations in Southeast Asia will contend in 40 games for 526 gold medals.
