ALBA Games

The ALBA Games (Spanish: Juegos Deportivos del ALBA) are a Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA). It was originally intended only for athletes of the ALBA member states but it has expanded to other countries in the Americas.

The first edition was held in 2005 in Havana, Cuba. Since then it was decided that Cuba and Venezuela will be switching editions every two year. However there is a possibility that other countries may host the games in future editions. [1]
