The Ministry of Youth and Sports announced that following the 2023 African Games, the recently constructed Borteyman Sports Complex will be transformed into a University for Sports Development.

According to Sector Minister Mustapha Ussif, the action is intended to guarantee that the Complex’s amenities are kept in good condition.

During his Monday, February 4, 2024, media briefing, the Minister made this statement regarding the arrangements for the African Games, which will take place in Ghana from March 8 to March 23.

He claims that after the Games are over, the Borteyman Sports Complex will be transformed into a University for Sports Development.

“To ensure the facilities are well maintained for the continuous benefits of the good people of our country, the facilities at Borteyman will be converted to the University for Sports Development after the Games…to ensure sustainability and legacy of these Games.”

Currently, the multi-million dollar Borteyman Sports Complex houses a number of amenities, such as football fields, dormitories, a cafeteria, and a medical centre.

The Sports Minister noted that “this will attract local and foreign sports federations to camp in Ghana and prepare for various competitions.”

Establishing a Sports Development University out of the existing facilities will, according to Mustapha Ussif, “position Ghana as a sports hub within the West African sub-region.”

The Borteyman Sports Complex will be the venue for sports like triathlons, table tennis, handball, volleyball, swimming, and badminton.
