The Rwandan Minister of Sports, Munyangaju Aurore Mimosa has announced resumption of games and leagues in September 2020.

Sporting activities were brought to a halt in Rwanda and most other countries in the world in March, as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.

A press release from the Minister has now given hopes to the organizers of the Azam Rwandan Premier League.

Minister’s Release

“Decision has been made to have local games and leagues resume starting September 2020, with training starting a month earlier,” the statement from the Minister reads.

“Sports Federations have been advised to engage their member clubs, team officials, coaches and athletes, to start planning accordingly.”

However, this will only be possible at the end of a risk assessment by Health and Security organs in charge of the fight against the pandemic and subsequent instructions from the government, based on the reports, as per the prescribed preventive guidelines.

Therefore, Rwandan clubs will begin training in August while expecting to resume their respective leagues in September if the situation continues to improve.

The Rwandan top flight was halted since March 15, 2020, with APR topping the log with 57 points and a game in hand ahead of Rayon on 51 points.
