Relief for football Clubs as Stadia across the country nears completion

Kenyatta stadium has been the most used ground in the past couple of months due the fact that most stadia across the country have been under construction. Machakos which is the only FIFA approved stadium has since been closed down due to overuse, the stadium has been home to the national football teams and the Kenya Premier League sides.

However, soon this will be a thing of the past as the most stadia across the country will be completed soon. Confirming the developments Sports Principal Secretary indicated that Kasarani Stadium, Kinoru Stadium in Meru County and Nyayo National Stadium will all be ready by June 1st.

“We had some challenges and that is why we couldn’t finish the two stadia as promised. But now we have put everything down to order and I will be making an inspection visit there soon. I want to promise that all those three stadia will be ready by June 1,” said Kaberia.

Either AFC Leopards or Gor Mahia, depending on the outcome of the Mashemeji Derby on May 1st, will be hosting English Side Hull City at Kasarani Stadium and organizers Sportpesa have been on the forefront making sure the pitch is ready as soon as possible as the historical match is slated for May 13th.

Kasarani Stadium is being rehabilitated to international standard with the biologically grown grass already imported and laid out with the betting firm overseeing the whole process.

This will be a big boost to Kenya Premier League leaders Gor Mahia who have continental assignments in the coming few months. Sirkal will  consider using Kasarani when the they host Algerian outfits MC Algiers in the first group game of the CAF  confederations cup on May 16th.

Kinoru stadium will also be ready in time as it is scheduled to host the Madaraka Day national celebrations as well Nyayo National Stadium. This will surely be a sigh of relief to Kenyan clubs who have been forced to use substandard play grounds in league matches.
