The $145 million Borteyman Sports Complex, initially built for the 2023 African Games in Ghana, has sparked controversy after hosting a church service just three months after the games. A viral video on social media showed people conducting the service inside one of its domes, prompting questions about facility management.

Investigations by Joy Sports revealed that the service was organized without permission by Christ Embassy-Legon Central. The University of Ghana’s Students Representative Council (SRC) and the church had sought permission for a student field trip, which NSA officials later found had turned into a religious gathering without their knowledge.

Non-Christian students on the supposed SRC fun trip were reportedly dismayed by the unexpected church event. The incident, occurring on June 1, 2024, led to an apology letter from the SRC.

The National Sports Authority (NSA) confirmed awareness of the incident and is conducting an investigation. The Borteyman Sports Complex features a 1,000-seater swimming pool, a multipurpose sports hall for 1,000 spectators, and facilities for basketball, badminton, and other sports.
