Held since 1974, the All Africa University Games brings together Africa’s top university athletes together to compete for prestigious continental university athlete titles. After a postponement in 2020, over 4000 athletes will compete at the 10th edition of the Games, now to be held in Nairobi, Kenya from 6-10 June 2022.
With the support of FASU and the Kenyan University Sports Association (KUSA), an official invitation was sent to all universities in Africa signed by the local organising committee, FASU, KUSA and Kenyatta university.
The games are the ultimate multisport continental event where all Degree awarding Institutions in Africa can present their own registered students aged 17 – 25years, no matter their nationality. Such a university shall require verification by their National University Sports Federations.

Double Scoring System: FASU awards medals to winning athletes, and trophies to overall winning universities trophies (Men, Women and Combined) based on the Olympic medal tally system. Overall Trophies (Men, Women and Combined) shall also be given to the National Federations whose universities collect the highest medal tally.
