The refurbished Kigali Pele Stadium will host the 2023 FERWAFA Super Cup between Rayon Sports and APR on August 12.

The Blues won the 2022/23 Peace Cup after beating APR 1-0 in the final held at Huye Stadium on June 3 whereas the army club are the reigning champions of the 2022/23 Rwanda Premier League.

The pair will thus battle for supremacy in the Super Cup final in August with a trophy and a cash prize at stake.

APR have won the Super Cup just three times in their history which was in 2002, 2016 and 2018. They are hoping to win it for the fourth time after losing last year’s edition to AS Kigali 5-3 on penalty shootouts.

Rayon last won the Super Cup in 2017 when they beat APR 2-0 at Umuganda Stadium in Rubavu.

The Super Cup which wraps up the football calendar year also serves as an avenue for the two teams involved to test their new players for both the Premier League as well as Africa campaign.
