RWANDA’s flag bearers in next year’s Orange Champions League and Confederation Cup will know their opponents this month, Bonnie Mugabe reports.
APR, who romped to their 11th league title last year, will compete in the Orange Champions League while Etincelles, who were without doubt the surprise package of the season, will feature in the Confederation Cup, a subsidiary of the Champions League.
According to reports from the Confederation of African Football (Caf), the draw is scheduled for December 19 in Cairo, Egypt.
Over 100 clubs from 53 national associations affiliated to Caf will be involved in the draw.
Etincelles club president Claver Pierre Rudodo recently said that the team is relishing the big stage test. “The players are pumped up for the challenge,” said Rudodo.
The 2011 Orange Caf Super Cup will be held at the end of January at the Stade de la Kenya in Lubumbashi between Champions league winners TP Mazembe of DRC and Confederation Cup champions FUS Rabat OF Morocco.
