According to club Chairman Robert Nyakundi, this decision was reached upon following security fears by considering the number of Ingwe fans expected to attend the match. The Chemelil Sports Complex is able to host 5,000 fans.
"We are renovating parts of our stadium including the perimeter wall that separates the fans from the playing ground. Last time when we played Leopards, close to 7,000 visiting fans were in attendance and they threatened to storm the pitch when they lost the match," Nyakundi told Goal.com.
"We tried to check on the Awendo and Afraha grounds but they are booked. Our home fans should not be worried, we will only stage the AFC and Gor Mahia matches away. The rest will be played at home or at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu when the repairs are completed."
Chemelil finished their league campaign in seventh position last season and according to coach Mike Muiruri, the club will be seeking a top five finish this term.
