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.
