0 468

The FKF Cup final, pitting AFC Leopards against their arch rivals Gor Mahia, will now be played at the Utalii Grounds and not Ruaraka as was earlier scheduled.

Ruaraka grounds is home to Tusker FC, and is in deplorable state since the venue is currently being used three times a week to host Kenya Premier League matches.

Kogalo made it to the final after beating Bidco United 4-1 on penalties following a 1-1 scoreline in regulation time while AFC Leopards also got past Division One side Equity Bank 6-5 on post match penalties after a 0-0 draw in normal time.

The last time the two giants met in the final of the knockout competition was in 2013 when AFC Leopards won 1-0 winners at Nyayo Stadium.

The match has been slated for Sunday, July 4, 2021, starting at 3 pm.

Earlier in the day, Equity will take to the pitch against Bidco United in the third place playoff which kicks off at 12 pm.

The winner of the tournament will be entitled to a KES 2 Million cash prize as well as a chance to represent the country in the CAF Confederations Cup. Second placed team gets KES 1 Million while third and fourth placed team gets KES 750,000 and KES 500,000 respectively.
