The Rusizi and Gicumbi districts in Rwanda are now set to receive 3000-seater stadiums, thanks to a partnership agreement signed between Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) and the Federation Royal Marocaine de Football (FRMF).
Vincent Nzamwita validated the reports after a meeting with the Director General of the Coter Terhrazaz Construction Company Anouar Gueriri, which will handle the construction works and also informed that construction will begin in the month of April.
The meeting was held on the sides-lines of the on-going Africa Nations Championship (CHAN 2018) in Morocco on Tuesday in Casablanca.
“Coter Terhrazaz Construction have accessed the topographical requirements of each site and are ready to begin works without any issues. They will begin construction works of both stadiums in Gicumbi and Rusizi, in April. Based on the meeting we had, they will use these two months to ship their equipment to Rwanda,” he said. “They,” added Nzamwita.
Coter Terhrazaz Construction Company has so far constructed 63 artificial stadiums and five natural grass stadiums in Morocco. Last year, the Federation Royal Marocaine de Football under the FERWAFA-FRMF pact agreed to finance the construction of artificial turf stadiums in various districts in Rwanda plus renovate the existing stadiums.
The partnership includes exchange programmes of technical and administrative staff, hosting of national and club teams from the country, training camps, sharing football knowledge, and offering extensive and advanced medical treatment to injured national team players
