Under the leadership of His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, Ghana is privileged to host a historic sporting event in the year 2023. As one of the founding members of the African Games, Ghana deems this a great privilege as it is the first time the nation gets to host such a major sporting event.

The Games will be held in Accra, the nation’s capital. The 13th edition of the African Games will witness ten to fifteen days of exciting contests of brain and brawn by 5000 elite athletes and coaches from fifty-five African countries in twenty-six carefully selected sporting disciplines. The event will also have over 3000 technical officers, journalists and global celebrities with TV and online audience of over 5.5 billion. The 13th edition of the African Games will be used as an official qualifier for the XXXIII Olympic Games Paris 2024.

We are ready to offer Africa an experiential Games that will provide memories to last a lifetime for all contingents and dignitaries. This is Ghana’s time as one of the founding nations of the Games. We offer to host the 60th Anniversary celebrations of the Games (1965 – 2025) at the 13th African Games in 2023. Our mandate is to host an event that will engender positive rivalry among the youth of Africa and project a united Africa to the world. The 2023 African Games will seek to promote Africa’s art and culture, which will in effect, lead to socio-economic development across the continent.

We extend an invitation to you all to come to Ghana for the experience of a lifetime. Let us celebrate our excellence the African way and share our passion at the center of the earth because, IT IS OUR TIME!
