On the day it all kicked off in Rwanda.

The raising of the national flags of the 8 countries taking part in the tournament, an official lunch, a Captain’s photo shoot, and a Manager and Captain’s press conference were the order of the day to be followed by a technical meeting in the evening.

The flag hoisting ceremony was supported by all teams and for St Helena, our four traveling fans were there in support.

The weather had cheered up from yesterday when Team St Helena was certain that the African rains were following them about, but it was near-perfect weather before the tournament starts.

All captains and managers were present in a very relaxed forum where members of the local media interviewed the countries about their preparation and current preparedness for the tournament.

Team St Helena following the formalities took the opportunity to explore a little Kigali.
