The male football teams of the University of Ghana, the University of Cape Coast and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, will participate in the maiden Triangular Football Games.

The games will take place from Tuesday, 8th to Sunday, 13th June 2021 on the campus of the University of Cape Coast.

This will be the first competition for the teams after the 2020 GUSA Games as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The idea of Triangular Games was mooted by the Sports Directorates of these three universities to prepare their various teams for the upcoming maiden edition of the Federation of African Universities Sports (FASU) Football Championship and also strengthen the sporting ties that exist amongst them.
