Arsenal Stars Tee Off in Rwanda’s ‘Home of Sport’ Challenge

Rwanda is known for its football association through its partnership with Arsenal since 2018. But Rwanda isn’t limited to football; it’s making strides in various sports. They’ve hosted events like the Basketball Africa League Finals, the Ironman 70.3 Triathlon, and the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers. To celebrate Rwanda’s love for sports, Arsenal players Eddie Nketiah, Granit Xhaka, and Martin Odegaard took on Visit Rwanda’s ‘Home of Sport’ challenge. Although, here we’ll focus on their mini-golf adventure and how they fared on the greens.

Arsenal Players talk other sports

In a chat with the welcoming host, Anita Jones, these football stars didn’t just chat about their love for football. They spilled the beans on their love for all sorts of sports, including table tennis, skiing, snowboarding, and badminton.

As they kicked back and talked about their younger years, the players took a trip down memory lane, sharing how sports played a massive role in their growing up. And, just like friends sharing stories, they let us in on their inspirations and sports idols, giving us a peek into who motivated them on their incredible athletic journeys.
