Rwanda Will Host Cecafa’s Club Championships In May
Rwanda’s Atraco won last year’s title after edging out the hosts El Merreikh of Sudan.
THE Confederation of East and Central African Football (Cecafa) has confirmed that this year’s Kagame Club Championship will be held in Kigali from May 15-29.
The Cecafa secretary general Nicholas Musonye confirmed the dates and also revealed that the regional football body has even managed to convince Africa’s football governing body, CAF, to shift the dates for one of Amavubi’s CHAN qualifiers on May 23.
“One of Rwanda’s CHAN qualifiers falls in this period but it will not be a problem because the dates have been revised. The first leg is now scheduled for May 1 with the return leg set for June 6,” said Musonye.
Rwanda will be represented by league champions APR and defending champions Atraco who won the title after dislodging Sudan’s El Merreikh 1-0 in the final.
Kenya will be represented by Sofapaka and Tanzania by Simba FC, among the clubs expected to take part in this year’s competition.
