CAF CC: Rayon Sports qualifies to Play-off Round

Posted on Mar 17 2017

Rwanda’s sole representative in continental club championships, Rayon Sports have qualified to the Play-off Round of the 2017 CAF Total Confederation Cup.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) Secretary General Hicham El Amrani confirmed the development on Friday, March 17 in a letter addressed to FERWAFA.

“We have been informed by FIFA of the suspension of the Malian Football Federation from all sporting activities. Consequently, the Malian clubs are not allowed to participate in CAF Interclub competitions scheduled this weekend.

“The aforementioned matches are hereby cancelled and the clubs of El Masry (Egypt) and Rayon Sport (Rwanda) are automatically qualified to the following round,” he added.

On Thursday, FIFA confirmed the suspension of the Malian Football (FEMAFOOT). FIFA’s statement read, “We inform you that under the decision of the FIFA Council Bureau of 16 March 2016, the Malian Football Federation (FEMAFOOT) has been suspended in accordance with Art. 16 of the Statutes of FIFA with immediate effect from 17 March 2017 until further notice,”

“Consequently, FEMAFOOT loses all its membership rights (see article 13 of the FIFA Statutes) with immediate effect. The representative teams and affiliated clubs of FEMAFOOT are therefore no longer entitled to take part in international competitions as from 17 March 2017 and until the lifting of the suspension,”

“This decision also implies that, as from 17 March 2017, FEMAFOOT and its members can no longer benefit from the development programs of FIFA or CAF. In addition, we remind you and your affiliated members that all sporting contact with FEMAFOOT and / or its teams should be discontinued throughout the duration of the suspension of the federation,”

“The suspension may be lifted at any time prior to the next FIFA Congress by the Council Office or the FIFA Council. We will inform you if necessary,”

Rayon Sports were supposed to play against Malian side AS Onze Créateurs de Niaréla in the second leg of the first round tie this Saturday at Amahoro National Stadium.

The Malian outfit had edged Rayon Sports 1-0 in the first leg last weekend in Bamako, courtesy of Boubacar Samassékou’s lone strike

Rayon Sports is now the first team to reach the play-off round where they will wait to know other winners of the Confederation Cup first round who will be drawn against the losers of the Champions League first round. The 16 winners of the play-off round will then advance to the lucrative group stage.
