Asamoah Gyan and the organisers of the All Regional Games, held a press launch to outline the roadmap for the maiden edition with the competition set for November 2024 in a star-studded event.

Gyan together with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kurt Okraku and the CEO of the All Regional Games unveiled the logo of the initiative at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel.

The occasion was also graced by former footballers including John Painstil, Fatawu Dauda, Agyeman Badu, Stephen Appiah and Emmanuel Tuffour.

Some heads of federations were also present at the event.

The event signified the official introduction of the All Regional Games to the public and the media, offering more information on the competition’s structure, the sporting disciplines involved, and its goal of discovering talents across the country.

This initiative will feature nine sports disciplines including football, athletics, volleyball, basketball, tennis, table tennis, boxing, e-sports and arm-wrestling. It will also feature para-sports.

The initiative requires each region to conduct trials and select its top sportsmen and women, who will then compete against athletes from other regions.

The regional tour will take place on 16 May.

On 8 June 2024, there will be community engagement and a clean-up exercise in Kumasi where the official launch of the games will be held.

Activities at the regional levels will run from 9 to 30 June. Participants in the games must be between 18 and 23 years old.

The former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan who is an ambassador for the event said: “Let’s make All Regional Games a successful one.”

“Let’s make it an institute, let’s make it something that our next generation will benefit from. We want to make sure that all the sports disciplines can also benefit. So, in the future when we go to the Olympic Games, it won’t depend only on football,” he said

Tiana Addai, the CEO of the initiative, mentioned that the primary plan was initially to support female athletes but later decided to include male athletes.

She emphasised that this is not a political agenda but a collective effort, encouraging all Ghanaians to support this initiative.
