Bandari director Edward Oduor says they have moved match from Mbarak Sports to municipal stadium because of its capacity to host huge crowds

Bandari FC will host Gor Mahia at Mombasa Municipal Stadium this Sunday and not Mbaraki Sports Club as earlier planned.

According to Bandari’s technical director Edward Oduor, the change has been necessitated by the bigger capacity of the municipal stadium which was rehabilitated last year ahead of Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

“We considered the capacity of Municipal Stadium which is bigger and security arrangements will be easier to handle and that is the reason we changed the venue,” Oduor told Goal.

Tickets for the match will go for Sh500 for VIP stand and Sh200 for terraces. Gor Mahia beat Bandari 1-0 in their last visit to the coastal city in July last year, which ended up as the only defeat Bandari suffered in Mombasa.

The port men have gone for five winless games while K’Ogalo have not won in their last two matches – losing 2-0 to Nakuru Top Fry and battling to a 1-1 draw against former champions Tusker.

    It will be a great experience to see K’ogalo play in Kisumo. But is the stadium ready? The last time I check, Alila was asking the county government of Kisumu to erect the required fence aroumd the pitch. Anyone in the know?

    As the club runs broke from next week, I strong rcommend to the EC to think of permanently relocating the club to kisumu stadium and machakos stadium , which should be the 2nd and 1st choice stadiums respectively for gor Mahia.

    City stadium is run down, rat infested, dilapidated, FIFA banned , injury prooned stadium that is now beginning to pose security risk.

    Gor Mahia fans are countrywide so nothing to worry about attendances.

    Jakoyo you are a madman in the bloggers market. I think you need psychiatric to examine your state of mind.

  • Jemoh Jasidindi says:

    I now agree with other bloggers that this Jakoyo guy is an impositor who doesnt mean well for the club.His comments are sarcastic and of no value at all.
