The African Centre for Sports Studies was launched at the Zenith University College in Accra on Thursday.

The college, which is the first of its kind in Ghana was founded by Mr. Fiifi Banson, one of Ghana’s most experienced sports journalists, and it will be in partnership with the Zenith University College.

The college will provide a diploma (and subsequently, a degree) in Sports and Recreational Management programmes.

H.E. Former President of Ghana, John Agyekum Kuffour, was present as the guest of honour for the historic occasion, which was also attended by distinct members of the sporting community in Ghana including former skipper of the Black Stars, Stephen Appiah.

The occasion was attended by students of the Zenith University College, members of the general public and the media.

Mr. Fiifi Banson, in his speech, expressed how proud and happy he was to finally see the beginning of such a ground-breaking project.

He said it was about time something of this sort happened in Ghana seeing that the country was very interested in sports and had produced many talented sportsmen over the years.

He urged all stakeholders in sports to take advantage of such an opportunity, and stated that talent without academia is not enough.

The lecture halls for the college have been named after prominent sports figures in Africa, both past and present, including Rev. Osei Kofi and the late Theodosia Okoh.
