The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has granted FUFA’s request to host the 1st leg of the 2024 Women’s Olympic qualifier against Rwanda at Kigali Pele Stadium on 12th July 2023.
FUFA has already received confirmation from the Federation of Rwanda Football Association (FERWAFA) of the availability of the Stadium.

The other option St. Mary’s stadium Kitende is not available for use as it is undergoing renovation works.’
The first leg between Stadiums Crested Cranes and Rwanda’s She Amavubi will be played on 12th July 2023 at 4pm Rwanda Local time (5pm EAT).
The return leg will be played at the same venue on 19th July 2023.
