Ferwafa keen to have new hotel ready for Chan 2016

Rwanda Football Federation (Ferwafa) has announced that the 4 star hotel it is set to start constructing will host some teams during the African Nations Championship (Chan) next year.

Fifa will provide Rwf2bn ($2,896,640) grant which is half the budget as part of the Fifa Goal project development programme aimed at helping developing countries establish infrastructure and facilities towards the growth of the game.

According to the Ferwafa president Vincent Degaule Nzamwita, the hotel will be four-storeyed with 88 rooms and will be built on the piece of land next to the Ferwafa headquarters in Remera, currently occupied by Rwanda Police.

“We shall approach banks and different stakeholders like the Ministry of Sports and Culture to help us fund the other half which is Rwf2bn,” Ferwafa spokesman Moussa Hakizimana revealed.

Construction is set to start next month as the football governing body awaits Rwanda Police to shift so that work can commence in order to beat the December deadline.
