Nairobi City Stars against Vihiga Bullets initially set for Sunday 19 January 2020 at Hope Centre, Kawangware has been forward by a day and will now be played on Saturday 18 January 2020 at the Camp Toyoyo, Jericho starting 3pm.
Shift of the round 21 National Super League (NSL) clash was necessitated by the unavailability of Hope Centre which was shut down for renovations in December 2019.
As per an official correspondence to all parties, the change of date and venue for the City Stars – Vihiga Bullets clash has since been ratified by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF).
“Kindly take note that the above-mentioned match has been rescheduled and the match shall now be played as follows; Match No. 207, Nairobi City Stars FC vs Vihiga Bullets FC – Saturday, 18th January 2020, 3:00 PM, Camp Toyoyo,”
Samson Otieno, the City Stars team coordinator said;
“We had been informed late last year that Hope Centre will be reopened in mid-January in time for the Bullets game. But we have now been informed the surface still needs more time to regenerate and it will only be ready in February.”
The two sides last faced off in Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega in early September 2019. City Stars won it 2-1 thanks to a brace from Gambian striker Ebrima Sanneh.
