The 2013 Kagame Interclub Cup was the 38th edition of the Kagame Interclub Cup, which is organised by CECAFA. It began on 18 June and ended on 1 July 2013. Sudan hosted the tournament for the fifth time since it officially began in 1974. Vital'O, who have won the Burundi Premier League a record 18 times, beat Primus National Football League side Armée Patriotique Rwandaise to win the tournament for the first time in their history.[1] Prior to the beginning of the competition, clubs from Kenya, South Sudan and Tanzania withdrew from the tournament due to security concerns.[2]

Participants[edit]

On 22 May 2013, the draw for clubs to participate in the tournament was released.[3] Due to dropouts the fixtures and group draws were amended only on 15 July, three days before the tournament.[4]

Group stage[edit]

The group stage featured eleven teams, with 4 teams in Group A and B and only three in Group C. Three teams advanced from Group A and B and two from Group C.

If two or more teams are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied to determine the rankings (in descending order):

  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;
  7. Drawing of lots.
