Rayon Sports players received a hero’s welcome on returning home on Friday morning from Mozambique after they reached the group stage of CAF Confederation Cup.
Rayon Sports became first Rwandan club to qualify for the lucrative 16-team league stage.
Thousands of fans were already celebrating on the streets of Kigali as early as midnight, more than an hour before the plane carrying the team could touch the tarmac at Kigali International Airport.
The airport erupted into scenes of joy as the players emerged from the arrival wing and the party continued for hours both on the streets and at Kigali Stadium in Nyamirambo where the club had organised a homecoming party for the returning heroes.
