In 2018, Rwanda Development Board (RDB) started working with Arsenal in a partnership aimed at promoting Rwandan tourism while at the end of 2019, Rwanda also partnered with Paris-based Saint-Germain, with a strong focus on promoting Rwanda.
In an interview with Jeune Afrique, President Kagame, an Arsenal fan, was asked which team he would support if the two teams meet.
In response, President Kagame said he would refrain from taking sides because it was like asking him who he would choose to support between the United States and China.
Returning to this partnership between the two parties in the final round of 2019, President Kagame said the agreement was exciting for the Rwandan side and productive on both sides.
"We have benefited from this deal and it is productive, both for Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal FC and we are happy with it," he said.
