    The competition venues spread in 23 cities across the country, divided into 4 clusters, all located on the island of Luzon (Metro Manila, Clark, Subic/Olongapo, and a fourth cluster consisting of standalone venues).

    The biennial regional multi-sport event will run from November 30 to December 11, 2019, with games from selected sports started as early as November 25.

    This will be the Philippines' fourth time to host the games, and its first since 2005. Previously, it had also hosted the 1981 and 1991 editions of the games.
