Rwanda: Rayon, Kiyovu to Battle for Rwf2.6 Million Cash Prize

Traditional rivals Rayon Sport and SC Kiyovu will meet for a second time this season on Sunday at Amahoro stadium as Rwanda Football Limited launches its activities.

Through its website www.footballRwanda.com, the organisation will launch its activities on Saturday although the match between the two old rivals will be played on Sunday, according to Managing Director Davis Ndayisenga.

Football Rwanda Media Limited was formed last September with a target of documenting and promoting football in the country through technology-based media as a driver for national development.

"We needed to kick off our activities in the best possible style, and there is no better way than a football match between Rayon Sport and SC Kiyovu," said Ndayisenga.

According to Ndayisenga, the main objective of the project is to document Rwandan football and prevent breach/loss of its records.

Rayon Sport beat SC Kiyovu 3-1 in the Primus National Football league first round this season and took all three points last month, and will be looking to do it again but only this time for the winner's cash prize of US$4000 [about Rwf2.6m] on top of the trophy. The beaten team will take home US$2000 [approx. Rwf1.3m].
