International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) is assessing Rwanda's bid to host the 2017 FIFA Executive Committee meeting in October according to the FIFA president, Gianni Infantino, reports the New Times.
" We are here to assess whether Rwanda is capable of hosting the meeting," the Swiss lawyer said adding that Rwanda has a very good chance of hosting the meeting because of its success in hosting continental football tournaments as well as global meetings.
Gianni Infantino said this while on a brief tour in Rwanda yesterday which saw him commission the Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) hotel.
The FERWAFA hotel, whose construction works is expected to take 18 months, is estimated to cost Rwf3.85 billion. The hotel will be built in four phases and the first phase will include construction of 40 rooms. The hotel aims to generate long lasting and sustainable income for the Rwandan football association.
