Central American Games

The Central American Games (ORDECA in Central American countries.[1] (in Spanish)

The Games have had an equivalent to the Mesoamerican ballgame, the oldest ball sport in the continent, on the sports programme.

The competition is the second multi-sport event to have the name: the Central American and Caribbean Games began life in 1926 as the Central American Games and had this moniker until it expanded its remit in 1935.
