Jeux des Iles de l'Océan Indien (Indian Ocean Games)


Championship (part of a multi-sports event) for (African) Islands in the Indian Ocean. (The Maldives have occasionally been invited.) The first official edition was held in 1979; from 1947 until 1963 a precursor called "Triangulaire" was organized between Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion. The 1982 to 1984 tournaments listed below are not part of the series but called Tournoi de l'Océan Indien and involved French club teams and selection from various African countries as well as the French amateur side. Likewise the 1981 edition called Coupe de l'Océan Indien falls outside the series. All four were held at Reunion.
