From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Galactic Games was a galaxy-wide sporting event that occurred on a different planet every seven years, the planets all over the galaxy competed to host the Games. It included a number of different events with the fastest and skilled competing in races and contests, all of them exciting and dangerous too, where betting on them was illegal. The Galactic Games Council organized the events with help from the Ruling Power, Euceron's governing body.

The first games were held around 100 BBY in order to promote peace through sports. They were held on Berrun in 33 BBY. The star of these games was the Euceronian athlete Maxo Vista, the winner of five events. The Galactic Games were held on Euceron in 26 BBY. Three Jedi teams kept the peace during the event.[1]

During the games a representative from each planet played with each team playing against the other in 20 events. Those teams were Team Coruscant, Team Fondor, Team Fwillsving, Team Kinyen, Team Kothlis, Team Kubindi, Team Ord Mantell, Team Ralltiir, Team Tralus, and Team Yag'Dhul.

During the reign of the Galactic Empire, an assassination attempt on Emperor Palpatine occurred when the Games were held on Coruscant in 3 BBY.
