Kigali Arena in Rwanda was built in just six months. At 10,000-seat capacity, it is billed as the biggest indoor sports facility in Eastern and Central Africa and among the top ten on the continent.

The complex sits on a 28,000 square-meter piece of land right next to Amahoro National Stadium, with a parking lot that can accommodate over 600 vehicles.

Since its inauguration, the facility has hosted a number of notable basketball games and tournaments, events, concerts, and conferences.

Among others, Kigali Arena was home for the second – and final – round qualifiers for the Basketball Africa League (BAL 2020) East Division and the playoffs finals for the Basketball National League.
