The 11th All-Africa Games, originally scheduled for July 2015 at Brazzaville in Congo, has been moved to September 2015, The Congolese Minister of Sports and Physical Education, Leon Opimbat, who announced this on Wednesday, said this was due to “international constraints.”

“It is now official that the 11th AAG in Brazzaville will take place in the course of the first half of September 2015. This is for us to free the African Games from international constraints related to the various competitions taking place in the world.

OlympicsIt is to make sure that the maximum number of high-level African athletes will come to Congo for the event,’’ Opimbat said at a technical meeting of the organisers.

The minister however said the experts who attended the meeting of the Technical Committee were satisfied with the progress made in the construction of facilities.
