KPL AllStars will face Spanish second division side Cordoba Club de Fútbol at the Estadio el Mauli in Antequera City on Wednesday.

The match will kick-off at 10pm Kenyan time. Cordoba feature in the Segunda Division, officially known as La Liga 2. They finished 10th last season. They were promoted to La Liga for the 2014-2015 season but could only manage a 20th placed finish and were consequently relegated back to the Segunda Division.

Another game for the Kenyan select side has been scheduled for Friday at the Estadio Municipal Jose Burgos Quintana in Coin City against Sevilla Atlético. The tour is the first of many programmes lined up under a recently signed partnership between La Liga and Kenyan Premier League.
