This is a social event with a purpose to entertain and raise awareness about beekeeping. CAMP Kigali is furnished with a Football Pitch which will host the match. All ApiExpo Africa 2016 delegates and the local community in Rwanda will be free to not only enter and enjoy the match, but also register to play in the game. The game will be played on the closing day of the Expo, Sunday 25th September, and will be graced by the Guest of Honour before the closing ceremonies. The winning team will receive medals and a tropy handed over to them with a clear message to actively promote beekeeping "with the level of energy required to play football". These two teams are:
Rwanda Honeybee FC
This team will consist of persons in the beekeeping sector and any other person they wish to recruit, who could be an outstanding person in the footballing fraternity in the country, for instance. The team will consist of a squad of 22 players, whose names will be confirmed to the organisers at least 2 days before the game. Their jerseys will carry beekeepeing messages in the national colours of Rwanda.
Africa Honeybee FC
This team will consist of persons in the beekeeping sector drawn from participating African countries, other than Rwanda. The team will consist of 22 players, whose names will be confirmed to the organisers at least 2 days before the game. Their jerseys will be in pan-African colours and will convey beekeepeing messages.
The match referrees will be pre-selected professionally trained football referrees, who understand the rules of the game.
Persons who wish to play in the teams should register by 15th August 2016. To register, please send your full names, nationality and the team you wish to play for, to firstname.lastname@example.org
