Rwanda's Rwandese Association Football Federation  (Ferwafa) is preparing to finalise its bid to host the 2019 Under-17 World Cup, BBC reports.

"We have already submitted a formal request to Fifa to host the event and they have registered us and sent bid documents," Ferwafa president Vincent Nzamwita told BBC Sport.

"We have a dateline of 25 August to send the terms and agreement to Fifa and later start preparing the bid," Nzamwita added.

Nzamwita said hosting a tournament like the World Cup will raise the profile of not only Rwanda but the region and continent as well, and the Ferwafa president insists the country is capable of hosting a tournament of such a stature.

Last year Rwanda hosted a successful Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) which saw a over 200,000 people travel to the country from across the African continent to cheer their teams.

The 2017 edition of the Under-17 World Cup kicks off in India on 6 October and will feature 24 nations, with Africa represented by Ghana, Guinea, Mali and Niger.
