The All-African Games (previously known as the Friendship Games) are a continental multi-sport event held every four years, organized by the African Union (AU) with the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) and the Association of African Sports Confederations (AASC).

All of the nations are from the African continent. The first edition was held in 1960 at Tananarive with it being called the Friendship Games and held between French-speaking countries. Before the 1963 edition, the French committees plus some other African committees came together to form the All-African Games with the first edition being held in 1965.
