Rwamagana City and Isonga Football Clubs were promoted to the Rwanda Premier League for the 2017-18 season after successful promotional playoffs over the weekend.

Rwamagana overcame Miroplast 2-3 on aggregate after two legs. Patrick Munyankindi’s penalty won the day for Rwamagana at the Mironko stadium.

Isonga eliminated AS Muhanga 1-0 (aggregate score) after a goal-less draw at the Stade Muhanga on Saturday.

Both Rwamagana and Isonga will lock horns in the grand final on a date the Rwanda Football Federation will decide.

Rwamagana City returns to the top division after just one side in the second division.

On the other hand, Isonga returns to top-flight league two seasons after their relegation.

Isonga and Rwamagana replace Kiyovu and Pepiniere who were relegated from the Rwanda Premier League after the just-concluded season.
