After an extensive two-year renovation, the iconic Amahoro Stadium is set to reopen on Monday, July 1. The state-of-the-art facility, now boasting a seating capacity of 45,000, underwent a significant facelift that commenced in mid-2022.

Originally planned for July 4 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Rwandan Liberation Day, the inauguration ceremony was rescheduled to July 1 by the Ministry of Sports to avoid potential scheduling conflicts. This change ensures the smooth execution of the celebratory events.

President Paul Kagame previewed the revamped stadium on June 15, just hours before the first match between APR FC and Rayon Sports. This tour highlighted the government’s commitment to enhancing sports infrastructure in Rwanda.

The reopening ceremony will feature a friendly match between the 2023/24 Primus National League champions, APR FC, and Peace Cup winners, Police FC. This highly anticipated game will culminate with the presentation of the Amahoro Stadium Inauguration Trophy to the victor.

The upgraded Amahoro Stadium is expected to become a premier venue for both local and international events, showcasing Rwanda’s growing prominence in the world of sports.
