Rwanda: Rayon Sport Sets 2015 Target

Six-time league champions Rayon Sport have given themselves a target of being a strong successful club in the Africa by the end of 2015.

The club chairman who also doubles as Nyanza's mayor Abdallah Murenzi revealed this on Friday while launching the club's new 2013-2015 vision which is aimed at helping the club to be self-reliant.

By end of 2015, we want Rayon Sport to be a strong and successful team not only in the region but even in Africa. We want to be competing in African club competitions every year.

"We want to enforce the law, bring back confidence and trust in our fans, reinforce structures, work on our vision and phase out bad management viruses," said Murenzi.

Murenzi further added that strong administrative structures and a well managed team will help Rayon Sport return to its trophy-winning culture which was last witnessed in late 2005 when they won the Peace Cup.

Among the plans contained in the 2013-15 vision, the blues will focus on building a strong football academy, build a stadium for the club, look for long-term sponsors as well as establish money generating activities for the club so as to be self-sustainable.

Before the end of January, the club management is planning to secure a bus for the team, equipment and recruit three Rwandan-born players to bolster their defense and midfield.
