    2023: Africa Games: AU Technical Committee satisfied with Ghana’s ability to host Games

    The Minister for Youth and Sports, Mustapha Ussif has laid to rest fears of Ghana losing the rights to host the 2023 Africa Games.

    His assurance comes after the minister revealed in Parliament that the Government has turned to the Legon Sports Stadium to host the games after plans to build a 50,000 capacity stadium at Borteyman were stalled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Following the minister’s revelation there werd concerns about whether Ghana risks losing the rights to host the games but answering a question in Parliament concerning the hosting rights, the Sports Minister gave the assurance that the Technical Committee of the African Games was satisfied with the progress made by the country thus far.

    “I want to assure this House that just two weeks ago, the AU Technical Committee was in Ghana, and they visited the various facilities we have, and are satisfied that Ghana is capable and able of hosting the best African Games.”

    Honorable Mustapha Ussif announced that the uncompleted University of Ghana (Legon) stadium will now be the center of the games, with adjoining facilities such as a warm-up area and many more set to be added to the stadium to host the multi-sport event in two years time.

    The 13th edition of the Africa Games, formerly known as the All African Games, will involve 54 participating countries and 25 sporting disciplines.
