Chairman of the local organising committee, James Chivivi said MSU is ready to play host to the games which will be spread across Gweru and Kwekwe.
“We are ready to host the games and for the first time in the history of the games all the athletes will be housed at one place which will make it easier to organise the logistics.
“The universities will be competing in over 10 disciplines from Saturday until Sunday and the games will be held in different venues in Gweru and Kwekwe,” he said.
MSU will host football, karate, pool, basketball, volleyball and tennis while Fletcher High School will host football.
