The Confederation of African Athletics (CAA), the continental governing body for the sport in Africa, hosts the African Senior Athletics Championships. Since its debut edition in 1979, it has been held on an ad hoc basis, with nine editions staged every fourteen years until 1993. It has been held biennially on even years since the tenth edition in 1996, and is always held in the same year as the Summer Olympics. The tournament, which was scheduled to take place in Algiers in 2020 but was postponed because to the COVID-19 pandemic, was hosted in the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, Nigeria in August 2018.
