Representatives of all 16 Rwandan football clubs through a video conference recently voted APR Football Club in the end of a campaign at its current points, in a bid to put an immediate end to the season.

This follows the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown which kicked o  in March, where the Rwandan top-flight football was brought to an end with a maximum of seven games to go.

APR FC is to be awarded the champions title, though promotion and relegation is yet to be decided.

Clubs voted in favour of APR FC to take the title, since it sat six points clear at the top of the league with a game in hand the by the league was suspended.

APR FC will certainly secure qualification for the next season’s CAF Champions league while Rayon Sport will represent Rwandan football in the CAC confederation cup.

The move comes days after the ministry of sports announced it was extending a ban on all sports competitions until September, casting more doubts on the resumption of the current football campaign.
