The 10th All-Africa Games will take place in 2011 in Maputomarker, Mozambiquemarker. Maputo's hosting will be only the third time the games will have been held in the southern part of the continent. Lusaka, Zambiamarker was initially granted the right to host the Games in April 2005 after the withdrawal of other bidders at the meeting of the Supreme Council for Sport in Africa met in Algeria. Ghana had indicated interest in hosting the Games. The Zambian government has withdrawn its offer to host the 2011 All Africa Games due to lack of funds.

The main stadium will be a new 42,000-seat stadium constructed by the Chinese in the suburb of Zimpeto. There are no reports of any other venues being constructed for the Games and Some events may be left out or contested elsewhere due to lack of facilities .
