KPL reveals that K'Ogalo v Ingwe 'Mashemeji derby' has been switched to Moi Kasarani from Nyayo Stadium this Sunday

Kenyan Premier League have confirmed that the Gor Mahia v AFC Leopards derby has been switched to Kasarani from Nyayo Stadium.

The eagerly awaited match will be played on Sunday, kick-off time 3pm.

“Kindly note that the league derby between Gor Mahia (home team) and AFC Leopards (away team) will now be played at the Safaricom Stadium, Kasarani and not the Nyayo Stadium as earlier communicated,” revealed a statement obtained by Goal.

The statement added, “The match will still be played on Sunday, 27 August 2017, kick-off time 3:00pm. The change has been prompted by the commencement of construction work at the Nyayo Stadium.”

Other matches that have also been moved to Kasarani owing to similar reasons include SofapakaNzoia Sugar (Wednesday, August 23), Gor Mahia v Posta Rangers (Wednesday, August 23) and AFC Leopards v Tusker (Thursday, August 24).
