Goal Ball

Ghana to host rest of Africa in 2021 IBSA Goalball African Championship December 3-11

 

Ghana Blind Sports Association of the Ghana Blind Union together with the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) are set to stage the 2021 IBSA Goalball African Championship from December 3-11 at the sports complex of the University of Cape Coast.

Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Morocco will all join the Ghana hosts to battle for supremacy and honours in the sport of Goalball.

The competition would feature both men and women teams in the first continental championship to be hosted in Ghana after it was previously staged once in Algeria and twice in Egypt.

At the last African Championships in Port Said, Egypt in 2020, the Algerian men’s and women’s teams both took gold to secure their place at the recent Tokyo Paralympics.

The 2021 Championship would be a qualifier for the 2022 IBSA Goalball World Championships in Hangzhou China, from 6-18 July. The top three teams in each gender would secure their tickets.

Mr. Eric Kissi, President of the Ghana Blind Sports Association and leader of the Local Organizing Committee, has reiterated that, “Ghana is committed to giving its utmost best in hosting a befitting Championship that would make the country and all of Africa proud. All visiting countries would be assured of peaceful and successful championships.”

The Ghana Blind Sports Association with support from the Ghana Blind Union has over the years developed Blind sports such as Goalball, Blind Football, Judo and Showdown in the ten regions of Ghana.
