The African Games (Non-official ), also called the Games of all Africa or the Pan-African Games, is a multi-sport competition held every four years on the African continent.

The first edition was held in 1965 in Brazzaville. Pierre de Coubertin, founder of the Olympic Games, had proposed the idea, but it remained a dead letter until the independence of the 1960s. Taking over from the Friendship Games involving the French-speaking countries, the first Games Are organized in Brazzaville in 1965 and immediately recognized by the International Olympic Committee.
