The competition, which is organized by the Russian Ministry of Defense, is being held at the Otar military base in the Zhambyl region in the south of the Central Asian country.

The 2019 International Army Games program includes 32 competitions on land, air and sea, with the participation of 220 teams from 37 countries from Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa.
