At present, WAG is joined by thirteen members namely Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
The West Asian Games was first organised in Tehran, Iran and was considered as the first of its kind. The success of the Games led to the creation of the West Asian Games Federation (WAGF) and the intention of hosting the Games every four years.
The West Asian Games is the newest of the 5 Regional Games of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). The others are the Central Asian Games, the East Asian Games, the South Asian Games, and the Southeast Asian Games (or SEA Games).
