Organisers of the All Regional Games, on Tuesday, April 9, held a press launch to outline plans for the competition with the maiden edition set for November.

This much-anticipated competition will feature athletes competing in nine sports disciplines: Football, Athletics, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis, Table Tennis, Boxing, E-sports, and Arm-wrestling.

Games will also welcome Para-Athletes for their inclusion.

A regional tour is set to commence on April 16 to create awareness ahead of the Games.

Each region is tasked with conducting trials in June to identify their top sportsmen and women.

Athletes selected, aged 18 to 23, are set to compete against their counterparts from other regions.

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.
