FIFA clears FERWAFA’s competitions to continue during 2018 World Cup

Posted on May 14 2018

The World soccer-governing body, FIFA has granted Rwanda a special permission to continue with all FERWAFA’s domestic competitions during the Russia 2018 World Cup, which is set to be held in June and July in Russia.

Following the congested Azam Rwanda Premier League, the second division men’s league, women football leagues (first and second division) and the annual Peace Cup competition which are all underway, Rwanda Football Federation requested FIFA early this month to grant them permission to continue with the domestic programme during the world cup in order to be able to finish them on time such that next year’s season would be held in conformity with Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) calendar of competitions.

FIFA’s response which was received late last week gave FERWAFA a clear permission to continue the leagues during the World Cup.

Boban said, “We would like to thank you for informing us that the Rwandan leagues intend to hold matches during the period of the 2018 FIFA World Cup,”

“FIFA has no issue with the Rwandan leagues continuing to play as long as players selected on the release lists of participating Member Associations taking part in the 2018 FIFA World Cup are released to their federations as of 21 May 2018,” stated the FIFA letter which was signed by Deputy Secretary General, Zvonimir Boban.

Following the permission from FIFA, all domestic competitions will continue unhindered during the month of June and July.
