We wish to take this opportunity to give you the updates regarding the Cecafa-Kagame Cup 2019 that will take place in Rwanda from 6-12 July.
We are glad to announce that preparations are in advanced stage with the Government of Rwanda, Ferwafa and Cecafa working very closely to ensure that we deliver a credible competition.
As you are aware, this year marks 25 years of Rwanda’s liberation and the 2019 Cecafa-Kagame cup is part of that monumental history in the great country of Rwanda.
As of today (Wednesday) we have a record attendance of 13 clubs who have already confirmed to take part in the two week festival. The Government of Rwanda, Cecafa and Ferwafa have planned a 16 club cup competition that will be part of this year’s ceremony.
We shall spread the matches in Kigali City, Rubavu and Huye Districts to enable the citizens of Rwanda and neighbouring countries watch cecafa matches Live.
We are glad to partner with Azam TV to transmit the matches Live across the region.
Besides sharing Rwanda’s history, this tournament serves to give our clubs an opportunity to prepare for the upcoming CAF CL and CC which start immediately after the Kagame cup.
