RWANDA, Kigali Young Africans President Hersi Said promises to pay entry charges for all members and fans who have travelled to cheer their team in Kigali, Rwanda on Saturday.
Hundreds of Yanga supporters made a long road trip to back-up their side as they face Al Merrikh in the CAF Champions League second preliminary round first leg at Kigali Pele Stadium.
Speaking to them at the match venue in Rwanda on Friday evening, Hersi pledges to pay entry fares to all of them.
He also reiterates that another history has been created as he has never seen an away team having many fans in a foreign country.
“Yanga is growing each day…we are not going downwards. We are blessed to have a team with passionate fans and members like you,” he says.
A long convoy of min-buses has been seen through social media platforms ferrying the club’s members and fans to the neighbouring country.
Aside of Yanga, their traditional rivals Simba also transported their fans to Zambia to give the team necessary support as they play Power Dynamos in the Champions League at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Zambia on Saturday.
