Free entry for fans at Harambee Stars’ Afcon qualifier


Football Kenya Federation waived the gate charges for the forthcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match in a bid to ensure Harambee starts get maximum fans support

The team will host Comoros on March 25 at the Kasarani stadium in their third match of the qualifying campaign.

The federation entered into an Sh3 million deal with betting firm, Betika which will see fans follow the proceedings from the terraces free of charge.

FKF president Nick Mwendwa said “the match against Comoros is very important for us and Betika’s decision to partner with us is timely. We urge Kenyans to show up in large numbers and support Stars, as we endeavour to consecutively qualify for the Afcon tournament,” said the federation boss.

“We are absolutely thrilled to support Stars. We believe today’s announcement comes at an opportune time when our team needs all the support it can to further cement their chances of qualifying for the 2021 Afcon tournament,” said Betika’s head of business, John Mbatiah.

“As a Kenyan home-grown company, we are fully committed to supporting the wholesome development of Kenyan football at different levels and that is why we have covered the cost of matchday tickets. We share in FKF’s aspirations of filling the stadium and getting the fans engaged with this great sport while bringing the best in everyone, which is at the very core of everything we are about.”
