CAF Set To Inspect Rwandan Stadium After Zimbabwe, Nigeria And South Africa Lodged Complaints

Africa-Press – Cape verde. The Confederation of African Football (CAF), is set to carry out an investigation into the state of the artificial pitch at Huye Stadium in Rwanda.

This comes after Zimbabwe, Nigeria and South Africa which all played on the pitch in last month’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, complained to CAF.

Zimbabwe’s Admiral Muskwe and Marvelous Nakamba, who play in England, picked up injuries while playing on the artificial turf.

According to a letter addressed to the Rwandan Football Federation by CAF’s Technical Development Director, CAF will conduct an independent inspection of Huye Stadium. Read the letter:

Concerning the use of the Huye Stadium in Huye during the last CAF/FIFA competitions matches, we would like to draw your attention that CAF has received complaints from the visiting teams concerning the quality of the artificial pitch in the field of play area.
Furthermore, the reports from the CAF Match Command Center (MCC) and the designated CAF match officials also raised the same concerns about the pitch.

In this regard, CAF will carry out an independent inspection of Huye Stadium conducted by an artificial pitch expert, to assess the current state of the pitch for use in CAF/FIFA Senior A international matches.

Based on the inspection report, a decision will be taken by the CAF regarding the approval of the stadium.

We underline that the CAF decision will be made based on the status of the stadium and the level of compliance reported at the time of the inspection.

Accordingly, we kindly ask FERWAFA to suggest the dates in the coming weeks, so that CAF can initiate the coordination of the mission.

We appreciate your contribution in helping us raise the standard of African football with improved facilities as we continue to be exposed to a global audience.
