AS Kigali win record 11th Rwandan title by landslide 

Viola NANKYA 

AS Kigali have won their 11th Rwandan Women’s Premier League since the establishment of the club in 2008 despite a 2-1 shock defeat to nearest rivals Inyemera.

Kayitesi Egidia’s side had led the Rwandan women’s topflight table by 11 points before the last match of the season and the defeat now means they have an insurmountable lead to clinch the title with 45 points from 16 games on Sunday.

No team has ever won the national crown 11 times and the Rwandan coach was delighted with how her side have fared since she was elevated to the headship from an assistant role.

“It was a great joy and pleasure for us to win the [Rwandan] league because It really meant a lot to me,”

Egidia said

As champions, AS Kigali were rewarded with a cash prize of RWF5 million ($5000) and also have qualified for the 2022 CECAFA Women’s Champions League playoffs as the country’s representatives.
