The country’s athletics have long been used to promote colonial interests. In fact, the sports ministry halted all international competitions to avoid a potential outbreak of coronavirus. The governing body of the Algerian Football Federation, Zetchi, recently denied any suspicion of match-fixing. The sport federation, however, hasn’t yet launched an investigation into the claims of match-fixing. This is because no material evidence has been produced to justify legal action against those responsible.
Sport in Algeria dates back hundreds of years. There are traditional sports unique to Algeria and popular worldwide. Several sports take advantage of the country’s proximity to the Sahara Desert. Some of these sports, such as horse racing and camel dancing, are especially popular with Algerians. Rifle shooting and soccer are also popular recreational activities in Algeria.

It is the national sport of Algeria, and people in the country also enjoy handball and volleyball. It’s no wonder that Algerian sports are so popular.
However, there is a dark side to sports in Algeria. Unfortunately, it has become synonymous with corruption. While football is one of the most popular sports in the country, the BBC recently published an article in which they discussed the ease of fixing football matches. The BBC reported that a ‘price list’ for buying players and officials existed. Local media is also open about the corruption issues, yet the Algerian Football Federation has not done much to clean up the sport.
The government has taken steps to promote physical activity and encourage healthy habits among youth. The Ministry of Youth and Sports has a duty to promote these activities as part of a national health program. However, these initiatives will require the collaboration of various governmental bodies and associations. The government will likely need to help build and maintain sports infrastructure in Algeria. However, the sport infrastructure will be the most beneficial. In order to develop a national sports program, Algeria must have a comprehensive infrastructure in place.
