HISTORY OF AUSC

The 1960s were a peak of Africa’s decolonization and also saw the emergence of sports organisations whose goals were to develop sports on the continent and to promote pan-Africanist ideals among newly independent African states. In December 1966, independent African states established the Supreme Council for Sports in Africa (SCSA), a pan-Africanist sports institution whose headquarters was in Yaoundé, Cameroon.  SCSA became an intergovernmental supreme body responsible for promoting, developing and coordinating all sports on the continent.

The Organization of African Unity (OAU), an association of independent African states that was established in May 1963 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to defend the sovereignty and eliminate colonialism in Africa. OAU recognised SCSA in 1967 as the official organization responsible for coordinating sports on the continent. Apart from coordinating the organisation of the All-African Games, SCSA played an important role as a platform for African countries to promote sports on the continent from 1966 to 2012.

Following the establishment of the African Union in July 2002, the African Union Heads of States and Governments at a Summit in Sirte Libya in 2007 called for a revival of the role of sport in driving the agenda for sustainable development and further resolved to charge the Ministers of sport with the mandate to revitalise and harmonise sport in line within the African Union (“AU”) structures and agenda for sustainable development.

Following these developments, the African Union Executive Council Decision EX.CL/Dec.680 (XX) of 2012 endorsed the dissolution of the Supreme Council for Sports in Africa (SCSA) and establishment of a new African Sports Architecture. This was followed by the Fifth Conference of African Union Ministers of Sports (CAMS5) from 25-26 July 2013 in Abidjan, Cote D’ ivoire, that dissolved the Supreme Council for Sports in Africa in its special session on 26 July 2013, in line with the SCSA constitution. Following the dissolution, all assets and liabilities of SCSA were transferred to the AUC.

These developments led to the adoption of the Statute of African Union Sport Council by the Twenty-Sixth Ordinary Session of the Assembly of AU Heads of States and Governments on 31 January 2016 that established the African Union Sports Council (AUSC) as a Specialized Technical Office of the African Union responsible for coordinating the African Sports Movement and being a forum for concerted action between Member States for the promotion and development of sports and development through sport in Africa. The Headquarters of the African Union Sports Council is in Yaoundé, Cameroon.
THE SECRETARIAT

The Secretariat is the administrative organ of AUSC located in Yaoundé, Republic of Cameroon. It provides substantive day to day management of AUSCthrough professional, administrative and logistical support that initiates programmes, studies and convene meetings, webinars and conferences considered essential for the implementation of programmes and activities entrusted to it by the Sports Advisory Board.

The Secretariat is headed by a Coordinator who is assisted by professional, technical and administrative staff who are all employed by the African Union Commission in conformity with the general policies and guidelines of the African Union.
