Herbert Mensah has been elected as the new President of Rugby Africa, following the conclusion of the Rugby Africa Executive Committee Elections held on March 18th, 2023.

With his passion for the sport and extensive experience in sports administration, Mensah is poised to lead the continent’s rugby governing body for the next four years.

In his acceptance speech, Mensah reiterated his passionate vision for the growth of Rugby in Africa. He highlighted that his top priority would be to continue the work he has already started, helping Rugby to progress and expand not only in Africa but also globally.

Mensah emphasized his background in business and stated that he would leverage this experience to create new revenue streams and developmental opportunities for all member associations. Mensah’s ultimate goal is to drive the growth of African Rugby and ensure that the sport reaches its full potential on the continent.

Mensah said, “As we embark on this journey, I want us to project rugby as an alternative team sport, gain financial independence and improve the World Rugby Elite Program. My aim is to make Rugby Africa the gold standard for sports administration in the African continent.”

Rugby fans across the continent would be delighted by Mensah’s vision, which aims to raise the level of African rugby internationally. Mensah added, “My vision for the next four years is to foster an all-inclusive competition framework that will provide members equal opportunities to grow and develop. I am also determined to build a positive and strong brand for Rugby Africa, expand the women’s rugby program, and provide a national stadium for each member association.”

Herbert Mensah is a well-known figure in Ghanaian and international sports administration. He has been a driving force for the development and growth of Rugby in Ghana, and his contribution to the sport’s progress in the sub-Saharan region has been significant.

Mensah’s vast experience in sports administration and leadership, coupled with his passion for rugby, positions him well to lead Rugby Africa through its next phase of growth and development. Under his leadership, we can expect to see more investment in rugby development programs, increased participation of African nations in international tournaments, and greater visibility of rugby in mainstream media.

With Mensah at the helm, Rugby Africa is poised for growth and development, and his team’s collective experience and vision for African rugby bodes well for the continent.
