About Map Games

The MAP Games are an annual amateur sports festival taking place in the township of Alexandra north east of Johannesburg

The games host 4 different sporting codes that see participants traveling from all across South Africa and bordering countries to participate in this prestigious tournament over the years.

The MAP Games have grown significantly since their inception in 2001 and currently have the biggest support base as compared to other programs of its kind. The games have over 250 teams in different sporting codes and over 10 000 athletes competing in the games year after year.

The MAP Games have over the years been seen as a spring board for amateur athletes to turn professional and some even go on to represent the National teams especially in the football category.

The MAP Games not only serve as a platform to showcase the best raw talent the country has to offer, but they also use sport as an effective tool to channel community programs for social development, social cohesion, deepening the gains of democracy and all round entertainment.
