It is in that regard, this Saturday 25 February 2023, Kigali Marriott Hotel and Four Points by Sheraton met on a football pitch at Cercle Sportif, Rugunga.
The soccer was a draw 1/1.
Four Points by Sheraton fans were convinced before the game starts that it was with no doubts they would overtake the match because they are the “fresh blood” of Marriott compared to their big sister, Kigali Marriott Hotel. Despite both teams’ efforts, the first half of the game ended with no scores.
Back from halftime, both teams came back stronger with a lively period; and the Four Point by Sheraton team players opened the score through Kwizera Isaac.
The Four Points goal became a wake-up call from the side of Kigali Marriott Hotel, just before the end of the second half, a player of Kigali Marriott Hotel, with action initiated from the left ended up equalizing through Bienvenu Muhoza.
With the high vibrations of energies of fans on both sides who were supporting their teams from the first to last minutes, the score remained there; drew 1 goal everywhere between the two teams, with the hope of supporters of both teams to have a second, return match.
We are looking forward to Round 2!
