Kenyan Premier League clash pitting arch AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia will proceed as planned on May 7th 2017 at Nyayo Stadium.
Hosts Leopards had earlier told the Kenyan Premier League and the Football Kenya Federation that they couldn’t offer enough security at the Afraha Stadium, where the match was initially booked.
Consequently, the clash was pushed back indefinitely.
Nyayo Stadium and Kasarani Stadium, the country’s biggest stadiums have remained closed since last year for renovation in readiness for the upcoming CHAN 2018.
Below is the official statement from hosts AFC Leopards.
We wish to notify members that after successful negotiations involving KPL and Sports Kenya, we have managed to secure Nyayo National Stadium for Sunday 7th May 2017.
We therefore confirm that the Derby match with Gor Mahia will go ahead as planned at the said venue.
We encourage members to come out in large numbers to restore and confirm our superiority. More details on match day hospitality and ticketing coming up.
