Coordinators of the 2023 Africa B-ball Festival are outfitting to showcase an extended lineup of talent, music, and culture at the Bukom Arena in Accra.
The sports and entertainment festival is booked to begin from December 15-17 at 3:00 PM, and will feature eight cutthroat teams, a striking extension from the four countries that partook last year — France, USA, Ghana, and Nigeria.
The event will have new competitors joining the court, including the UK, Liberia, Togo, and an extra country that will add to the lively competition.
The festival was officially launched on Thursday in Accra, with Yaw Sakyi Afari the Project Lead of the Africa Basketball Festival, hopeful for the best event ever. Eight participating nations will ‘cross swords’ to see who emerge the overall best.
The festival is anticipated to create a memorable experience for everyone of the countries and attendees too. Since the maiden edition in 2019, the Africa Basketball Festival has been a success, and this year is no exclusion. It will be a ‘lifetime experience’.
Fashion, music, and red carpet treat, will come ‘face to face’ with Basketball.
In 2022, it was an impressive display of talent, music, and art with four countries. This time, four additional countries have been added. The University of Ghana will go head to head against Accra Technical University as a feature of the 2023 competition.
The festival’s schedule unfurls as follows:
• Day 1: Arrival of participating countries and an opening ceremony featuring all teams.
• Day 2: Packed with thrilling games.
• Day 3: e-sport competition, culminating in a face-off between the winner of Africa and the winner of the international games.
The 2023 Africa Basketball Festival (ABF) is by RITE Sports in collaboration with partners including: Beyond The Return Office, December In GH and the Ghana Basketball Association. The festival guarantees an immersive experience, combining the love for basketball with African culture.
