The opening day of the 2015/2016 Azam premier league went by with no major buzz from fans for what is starting to look like a drop in interest in local football.
The very low turn ups for Amavubi fixtures should have been a warning sign for what is starting to become a fans disinterest in Rwandan football, another aspect where FERWAFA should go back to the drawing board, but do they care?
What many predict might be the closest national league championship kicked off over the weekend with business as usual for the traditional giants hitherto AS Kigali.
Defending champions APR looked fragile in their one goal victory over Enticelles but that shouldn’t have been a surprise going by their current coaching woes.
Isae Songa seems to be the inform striker as he continued with his pre-season form to score on his league debut for Police F.C in their win over Mukura. National team coach Mckinstry should be impressed.
One person that should be worried with his form is Songa’s rival for the Amavubi berth, Ernest Sugira who once again failed to find the back of the net in AS Kigali’s goaless draw at home against Rwamagana F.C. Though not yet worrying times for Eric Nshyimiyimana’s men.
Rayon Sports are set to prove many doubters wrong going by their impressive victory away to Marines. The tie was expected to present a stunning test to the blues but the side seemed to differ putting up their best performance in the past six months for a comfortable two nil win. Is it too early to think of a return to glory days for the Nyanza outfit?
