Stage set for KPL Fans’ Fun Day

The inaugural KPL Fans’ Fun Day will take place on Saturday at the City Stadium. This event is expected to bring together about 5,000 football fans affiliated to the 16 Kenyan Premier League teams, who will participate in various competitions, including seven-a-side football matches, spot-kicks (penalties) tug-of-war and sprints.

Twelve teams have confirmed participation and winners will be awarded with cash prizes, trophies and other gift tokens.

“This event aims to bring together our supporters and their families to have fun, bond even as we address some of the challenges that tend to peg back the competition, especially hooliganism. It will be a great day for Kenyan Premier League fans,” the event co-ordinator, Jeff Kinyanjui, said.


South African Pay TV channel SuperSport are the tournament sponsors.

“We are proud to be associated with the KPL Fans’ Fun Day. These fans have stood with us for many years by supporting our clubs; either by going to the stadium or by watching football at home, we will be there to say a big thank you,” said Auka Gecheo, SuperSport General Manager for East Africa.

Last month, Gor Mahia fans held an inter-branches football event at City Park Stadium.
