NVAS Africa Day: Sport in Africa
Zaterdag 15 Oktober 2016 10:00 - 17:00

When thinking about sport in Africa, many of us will immediately remember the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. It was the first time that such a mega sport event was ever held in Africa, drawing a lot of attention to football on the continent and promoting interest in Africa’s national teams. Indeed, there has been a tremendous increase in the interest in sport in general and its impact on African societies since the United Nations General Assembly adopted the first of a series of resolutions entitled “Sport as a means to promote education, health, development and peace” in 2003.
