Nairobi City Stars will face off with Bidco United in the quarter-final of the Betway Cup on Thursday 10 June 2021 at Ruaraka and not Thika Stadium as had earlier been scheduled.
The shift was confirmed in a communication from the Federation to all quarterfinalists on Monday evening.
According to the Federation, fixture congestion occasioned by the COVID 19 pandemic and the need to conclude the FKF Betway Cup within the set-out CAF deadline, as well as the possibility of having the said cup matches broadcasted live on Television, informed the switch of venues.
The quarters will now be played as follows;
Wednesday, June 9, 2021.
Match No. 57: Bandari FC vs Equity FC | Ruaraka Grounds, Nairobi | 3pm
Match No. 59: Tusker FC vs AFC Leopards SC | Utalii Grounds, Nairobi | 3pm
Thursday, June 10, 2021.
Match No. 58: Nairobi City Stars FC vs Bidco United FC | Ruaraka Grounds, Nairobi | 3pm
Match No. 60: Gor Mahia FC vs Kariobangi Sharks | Utalii Grounds, Nairobi | 3pm
The action is getting hotter!!
Here are the Quarterfinal fixtures, to be played on Wednesday and Thursday.
