Ghana have been handed the mantle to host the 2023 All Africa Games. It's the first time the Games will be staged by the country.




The Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) gave Ghana the nod to host the 13th edition of the continental multi-sport event. Nigeria and Burkina Faso had also submitted bids, but Ghana came out as winners.


 

Ghana join the likes of Congo Brazzaville, Mali, Nigeria, Algeria, Kenya, Egypt, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique as the only countries to have hosted the event. Deputy Sports Minister Hon. Perry Okudzeto weeks ago confirmed Ghana’s decision to bid for the competition.



 

Egypt remains the most successful country in the All-Africa Games having won 1362 medals in total. Ghana has participated in 11 All-Africa Games and, out of the 50 countries that have taken part in the competition, they have the ninth-highest number of medals.
