The announcement was made by host nation, the Philippines, along with other APSF members who were set to compete in the ASEAN Para Games during a recent teleconference.

The teleconference lasted for a total of two hours and involved eight of the 11 participating nations, namely Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Laos, the Philippines, and Indonesia.

Participants agreed that the tournament would take place in the Philippines in October instead of January as initially scheduled. 

The ASEAN Para Games has faced a number of setbacks during the year, with financial trouble and COVID-19 epidemic forcing the Philippines to change the start date from January to March, then June and now October.
