The Council of East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA) consultative meeting held in Addis Ababa today selected Rwanda as hosts for this year’s Cecafa Kagame Cup (Club level) slated to kickoff in July.

It will be the fifth time the land of many hills will be playing host to one of the oldest regional club tournaments in Africa.

Rwanda last staged the championship in 2014 with the home side APR FC losing to Sudan’s El Merreikh 1-0 in the final in Kigali.

Dar Es Salaam hosted the tournament in July 2018 with Azam winning 2-1 against Simba in an all Tanzanian final to record their second title.
