The tournament which is hosted by African digital TV satellite provider, Kwese TV, roared into life last year and is looking to deliver on an even bigger scale this year by bringing in Kenya.
Kenya is an internationally established team in the rugby 7’s and its participation will definitely go a long way in increasing the level of competition in the tournament. The other teams that will be participating in the tournament are Botswana Spartans, Lesotho, Gold Cup Champions False Bay, Zambia, Zambia A, Zambezi Steelers and Goshawks.
“The Kwese Vic Falls 7s is in its second year, and is it should be, it has gotten better with blockbuster teams set to participate. Kenya who are a world recognised 7s powerhouse make their maiden appearance while Uganda and our very own Zambezi Cheetahs join Kenya as headline participants,” read a press statement from Kwese TV.
“The tournament will be played at Victoria Falls Primary School (Farm School) on 24 and 25 March and games will begin at 9am. We are looking forward to welcoming thousands of locals, tourists and fans from beyond our borders to this high octane, festival event.”
Although relatively new to the industry, Kwese has been on the rapid rise with coverage of African sports spearheading its drive to expand to all corners of the continent. As of now, the digital satellite provider has penetrated over 30 million households throughout Africa.
