Nairobi City Stars will ‘host’ Thika-based Bidco United on Sunday 24 October 2021 at the Thika Stadium, starting 3 pm, in a fourth-round 2021-22 FKF Premier League match.
It will only be the third time that the two teams will be facing off in the Premier League, and just the second time that City Stars will host Bidco United.
During a similar fourth-round tie last season, held at Utalii, host Bidco United forced a 0-0 draw in the first-ever top-flight meeting between the two sides.
Bidco went on to win the reverse tie hosted by City Stars at Ruaraka 2-1 adding on to a 1-0 win posted earlier during a 16th round domestic Cup tie at the same venue.
A notable departure from last season is the change of personnel on the Simba wa Nairobi side.
Bosnian Sanjin Alagic who handled all three games against Bidco United last season has since left. Nicholas Muyoti, immediate former coach at Kakamega Homeboyz, is the man in charge of City Stars.
Heading to the Sunday tie, host Nairobi City Stars carries two straight wins over newly-promoted Kenya Police (2-0) and Wazito (3-1) as Bidco is reeling from a loss to Bandari (3-2) and draw to Ulinzi (1-1).
