The 2012 Kagame Interclub Cup was the 37th edition of the Kagame Interclub Cup, which is organised by CECAFA. It began on 14 July and ended on 28 July 2012. Tanzania hosted the tournament for their eleventh time since it officially began in 1974, when they were also hosts. The tournament made Wau Salaam the first South Sudanese club to take part in an international club tournament.[1]

Defending champions Young Africans picked up their fifth title of the competition after beating fellow Tanzanians Azam in the final.


SuperSport secured official rights to broadcast all games played in the tournament. They used their SS9 (SuperSport 9) and SS9E (SuperSport 9 East) channels.[2]


On 29 June 2012, the draw for clubs to participate in the tournament was released.[3][4][5] Young Africans, the winning team, received a cash prize of US$ 30,000, while the runners-up and third-placed teams, Azam and Vita Club respectively, received cash prizes US$ 20,000 and US$ 10,000 respectively.[6] The budget of the tournament is said to be around US$ 600,000.[7] Matches are being played at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar es Salaam and the Azam Stadium in Chamazi.[8]

  1. Number of points obtained in games between the teams involved;
  2. Goal difference in games between the teams involved;
  3. Goals scored in games between the teams involved;
  4. Away goals scored in games between the teams involved;
  5. Goal difference in all games;
  6. Goals scored in all games;
