All roads are leading to Kirehe district bordering Tanzania where a determinant football match is scheduled this afternoon.
Rayon Sports Club is going to tussle it out with Kirehe Football club in the Azam Rwanda Premier League.
Dozens of buses carrying enthusiastic fans have been seen plying from most parts of the country including Kigali and rolling to the Far East border town.
By noon, the site dusty playground was being marked with spray paints because it hardly has no grass or an improvised carpet.
“This is not and should not be a football pitch. It’s a seed bed,” Jean Hagwiri a Rayon Sports Fan said signaling fears that his team may not perform to its best because the ground is not favourable.
Kirehe FC will definitely enjoy full home support and also has surprisingly excellent players although Rayon Sports FC is another formidable force with both regional and continental recognition.
Rayon Sports enjoys wide fanbase throughout the country and in the diaspora. But this afternoon the 90 minutes play will determine the winner when the final whistle gets blown.
In January, it must be remembered that Rayon Sports beat Kirehe FC 3-0 during the two sides’s reverse fixture.
