The idea to establish the African Centre for Sport Studies was conceived by its President, Mr. Fiifi Banson in 2011. After five years of studies, reflections, research, interviews, consultations and preparations, ACSS was ready to take off. It was accredited by NABTEX in March 2015, to run a certificate programme leading to a Diploma in Sport Management. The official opening of ACSS was performed by His Excellency John Agyekum Kufuor, former President of the Republic of Ghana on October 20, 2016. ACSS is in strategic partnership and collaboration with Zenith University College to run as a faculty. Accordingly, the lecture rooms and offices are located within the premises of Zenith University College.
