Central American Games history

Central America and Caribbean

The Central American Games (Spanish: Juegos Deportivos Centro­americanos) are a multi-sport regional championships event, held quadrennial (every 4 years), typically in the first year after Summer Olympics. The Games are open for member federations of the ORDECA - Central American Sports Organization (Organización Deportiva Centro­americana): Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama and Belize. The quadriennial event took off in 1973. Chess was included in the programme of the games in 1986.

The Central American Games must not be confused with Central American and Caribbean Games, nor South American Games and Pan American Games. None of these events features chess.
