He said things will start moving fast once the president signs the ordinance.
The Manipur government has already allocated land for the proposed university, he said.
The ordinance will be on the lines of the bill introduced in Lok Sabha in August, 2017.
As of now, there are some institutes which offer various courses for athletes and coaches.
The proposed university is expected to bridge this gap.
The proposal to set up the national sports university in Manipur was initially announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while Rs 100 crore funds for it were allocated in the 2014-15 budget.
