Kuala Lumpur 1971

The 6th Southeast Asian Peninsular Games were held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 6 December - 13 December 1971.

In this edition of the games, host country Malaysia joined Singapore in pressuring Thailand to let the SEAP Games Federation expand to include the Philippines and Indonesia, but to no avail.

Thai officials felt that such expansion would be contrary to the small family affair they had intended the games to be, and would not be in keeping with the close-neighbours spirit the games was supposed to cultivate. Ceremony venue Stadium Merdeka.
