Macau has been a Portuguese colony since the first settlement was established in 1557 . In 1987, China and Portugal agreed to return Macau in 1999. The CODM was also founded in 1987, initially as Comité Olímpico de Macau (COM). In 1989 the association was recognized by the Asian Olympic Association OCA, as it was already a CODM. Recognition by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has not yet taken place, so Macau did not take part in any Olympic Games. (As of 2014)

Macau has participated in all the Asian Games since Macau athletes first appeared at the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok , where they won a silver medal. Macau won the only gold medal so far at the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China . (As of 2014)

In 2004 the CODM was one of the founding members of the ACOLOP. Since then, the country has participated in all Jogos da Lusofonia , the games organized by the ACOLOP for the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries . The CODM hosted the first Jogos da Lusofonia in 2006 . The athletes from Macau were able to win medals at all games. With 15 gold medals, they were particularly successful at the Jogos da Lusofonia 2014 in Goa , India .
