Rwandan Football League Remains Unranked

For a second year running, the Primus National Football League has not been ranked on the International Federation of Football History and Statistics according to the latest rankings released this week.

In the top 30, Uganda's league is placed 18th, Tanzania league is ranked 22, Ethiopian league is ranked 24th while Kenyan Premier League comes in 25th position. According to IFFHS, the Sudanese Premier League emerged the strongest in Africa after three clubs made it to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.

El Merreikh topped Group A and was followed by El Hilal in second place but El Ahly Shandy finished at the foot of the table in the same pool.

IFFHS rated the NPL 60th in the world and 5th in Africa, beating the Absa Premiership of South Africa, the local dream destination for most budding African players.

The Absa Premiership was rated 82nd in the world and 12th in Africa. The NPL has been ranked as the fifth strongest league in Africa for 2012.

IFFHS is a Germany-based organisation founded in 1984 to chronicle the history and records of association football.
