The opening ceremony featured young artists from Chitral, Ghizer, Hunza, Gilgit, Balochistan, Sindh and Punjab.

The athletes, male and female young and senior citizens and special persons, seemed tired after their long journeys by bus; however their spirits were high. The games have people participating from as far away as Chitral, Gojal-Hunza and Ghizer in the north to Balochistan and remote areas of interior Sindh in the south of the country. More than 600 athletes are participating in events like cricket, men and women football championship, netball, table tennis, badminton, judo karate and TaeKwan-Do.

The games are part of the international games held in 2008 to celebrate Golden Jubilee of the enthronement of Prince Karim Aga Khan as spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims, and are being organised by The Aga Khan Youth and Sports Board for Pakistan (AKYSB-P). Participants of all ages were present at the Jinnah Sports Stadium.
