Africa Sports Ventures Group (ASVG) having reached a milestone agreement with the Federation of Africa University Sports (FASU) to institute a continental Student-Athlete Sports Scholarship program for Universities in Africa on November 22nd 2019, will now establish the first ever African Collegiate Sports League for all sports disciplines mirroring the NCAA in the USA.
The League will be called the Africa Collegiate League and a key purpose for its formation, besides being a support structure for the Africa Sports Scholarship Fund, is to bridge the gap between the Youth Sports stage and the Professional Level in the development continuum of Athletes in Africa.
The Africa Sports Scholarship Fund has been set up to incentivize and heighten Student Athlete participation in Sports in Universities across Africa and provide opportunities for young sports men and women coming up from the school system.
The African Collegiate Sports League, which will start in October of 2020 with an initial installment of 32 Universities, will start off with two sports disciplines (Football and Basketball), and the list of those Universities will be revealed at an ASVG event in the first half of 2020 at the company’s Headquarters in Accra Ghana.
The African Collegiate Sports League does not replace or displace the functions of the African university sports federation, but is established to create more opportunities for student athletes to excel.
