WAUG, the Olympics Games of West Africa students, is the biggest and most competitive games among West African students. The WAUG Games are aimed at fostering greater friendship among youths of the West African sub-region in addition to providing an opportunity for West African Universities to contribute to the development of highly skilled elite athletes among their students as done by Universities all over the world.
At present, Fourteen (14) West Africa Countries are active members of WAUG, represented by about 60 Universities. Only Cape Verde, Gambia and Mauritania are not represented yet in WAUG.

WAUG Games are organized every 4 years. This year’s Games is proudly hosted by The University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Featuring both male and female tournaments in:
