The Rwandan football championship resumed on Sunday 2 May after a four-month suspension due to Covid-19. The defending champions, APF FC, received their trophy on the sidelines of their victory on the opening day.

The matches took place on different pitches in the country. It is clear that the big teams have negotiated well their first outing. For example, in group A, the defending champion, APF FC, beat Gorilla 2-1.
