“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.”

The multi-million dollar Borteyman Sports Complex currently has several facilities, including hostels, football pitches, 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."

Mustapha Ussif explained that converting the facilities into a Sports Development University will "position Ghana as a sports hub within the West African sub-region."
