On February 27, 2023, the Local Organizing Committee for the 13th African Games collaborated with stakeholders, including the African Union (AU), the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA), and the Association of African Sports Confederations (AASC), as well as the National Sports Federations, to conduct facility inspections. The purpose of the inspections was to evaluate the readiness and completion date of the facilities, which is a critical aspect of the consultation process to determine a new date for the 13th African Games to be held in Accra in 2023.

The delegation initiated the facility visit at the Borteyman sports complex, where the contractor on site presented the project and the progress of work achieved so far, taking them through the inspection process. The team continued the inspection at the University of Ghana sports stadium and the rugby field, followed by the games village. The Achimota cricket Oval, the Bukom Trust Sports Emporium, the Theodosia Okoh hockey pitch, and the Accra Sports Stadium were among the other facilities inspected.

The National Federations provided guidance on the technical requirements and logistics necessary for the facilities to meet international standards. The delegation from the AU, ANOCA and AASC was content with the level of construction and the completion date.
