The semi-finals and final of the inaugural Basketball Africa League (BAL) will take place in the arena in March 2020, as well as the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Championships in 2021.

The venue will also host concerts, conferences and exhibitions.

Kigali Arena joins a host of other indoor arenas throughout the continent, including the 20,000-capacity Cairo Stadium Indoor Halls Complex in Egypt and Ticketpro Dome in SouthAfrica.

Paul Richard Kabambi, a Congolese electronic and electrical engineer technologist added that Tanzania, Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and Rwanda are setting the standards for what Africans can realise for Africa with defined objectives and good leadership.

Africa is on its way to greatness if only if Africans believe that we are the pillar of our own development and economical growth.

Niwagaba Ismael, a GIS Expert, Oil and Gas agree that If all African countries were determined like Rwanda, then we would be somewhere.
