The twice postponed DSTV Supercup will take place this Sunday at Afraha featuring Gor Mahia and Tusker. This cup usually features the winners of the league and the winners of the GoTV Shield. However the sponsors likely settled on Gor Mahia in order to draw crowds.
The match is scheduled for Sunday, 5-March-2017 at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru from 3pm. Gate charges for the match are KSh500 and KSh200.
The long awaited Kenya Premier League will start the following weekend. Gor Mahia will start their campaign against newly promoted Kariobangi Sharks that is owned by FKF chair Nick Mwendwa. The league will start with 16 teams as KPL awaits a tribunal decision on whether to include Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth.
