Increasing Engagement and Awareness in the Sports Industry.

Welcome to the African Sports Network.


We recognize that the sports industry is one of the fastest growing industries overseas with more than enough opportunities and money. African athletes have proved to be talented in sports, however our industry is still suffering. The potential of the African sports business industry is slowly being realized and we are keen on making this potential understood by Africans.


Sports can be used to tackle social issues ranging from drug abuse to unemployment, and one of the major beliefs we have is that sports activities are a great tool of emancipation of women in a society. Involving girls in sports activities alongside boys can help overcome prejudice that often contributes to social vulnerability of women and girls. When a woman excels in sports, she is a catalyst for challenging gender stereotypes and she promotes and empowers other women to rise up. 


We aim to ensure that no young, passionate and ambitious African child aspires to join the sports industry and is pressured into believing that it is not a viable career path. Most importantly, we want to guarantee that no young girl with a love for sports feels limited in the industry due to her gender. 


The African Sports Network is positioned to give African youth an upright support system to enable them to excel in school, while at the same time working towards transforming Africa’s sports industry. 

We equip the youth with the ability to dream and strive for a better future for the African sports industry in order to create a strong foundation for self-development and expose them to a life of limitless opportunities in line with their passion for sports. Some of the skills we focus on nurturing are leadership, entrepreneurship, social skills and expertise in the business of sports.


They will also have a network of like-minded people who will support them with their ventures. 


We hope that in the next 10 years, our impact will be visible through the increased numbers of young Africans taking up leadership positions in the sports industry and creating positive impacts in their communities. 


We look forward to working with you to transform Africa’s sports industry!

"Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to the youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair."
