The paper is a review on efforts needed to reposition University sports in Nigeria. If sports in Nigerian Universities will meet the global best practice, then attempts must be made upgrade sport facilities in Nigerian Universities. Provide coaches with the requisite training and certification. The Nigerian University Games Association being the umbrella organisation for University sports must organize sports in division level. The greatest challenge for sports growth which has to do with sponsorship and branding has to be pursued with utmost vigor and determination. Private and corporate organisation must come to the aid of University Sports by carrying out their corporate social responsibility through building of sports facilities.
