The 8th Federation of African University sports (FASU) will be held from 26th June to July 2nd 2016 in South Africa. The games will be hosted by the University of Johannesburg and the Tshwane University of Technology, South Africa. Individual universities in Africa will be participating in the seven day games that include basketball, football, volleyball, athletics, netball, table tennis and tennis and chess. In all, 28 countries will be taking part in the games
Ghana will be represented in basketball by the University of Ghana basketball team after their victory in this year’s Ghana University Sports Association Games (GUSA). As diversified as Africa is, it is thus divided into five zones namely EAUSF, WAUG, CUCSA and FASU Central to give equal opportunities to students compete regularly.
The FASU games were initiated in 1951 by the Universities of Ghana and Ibadan of Nigeria, to foster cooperation and positive competition between their student body.
