Ruaraka will host the first-ever Premier League meeting between Nairobi City Stars and promoted Vihiga Bullets on Saturday 6 November starting 3 pm.
There was a possibility of the fifth round game shifting to Hope Centre, Kawangware, to be played on Sunday 7 November, but that has since been shelved for another day.
“We had hoped to host the game at the Hope centre. However, due to unavoidable circumstances, Ruaraka, as originally planned, was maintained as the facility to host the Bullets game,” said club CEO Patrick Korir
“It’s been close to two years since City Stars played a league game at the Hope Centre due to the busy schedule of the venue,”
“We are now glad that the venue managers are receptive to our request to host games at the grounds as, over the years, that been regarded as the epicentre of Nairobi City Stars,”
“In due course, we will host some matches there and reconnect with our dear fans. In the meantime we urge them to come out and support us in the games that will be hosted in select venues across town,” urged Korir
City Stars last hosted a Premier Lague game at the Hope Centre – in hosting Mathare United – on 8 November 2014. The game ended 0-0.
