Gor Mahia have moved their Kenyan Premier League (KPL) opener against Tusker from Machakos. Speaking to Goal.com K’Ogalo CEO Omondi Aduda stated that the league opener will be played at Kisumu Stadium and not Machakos Stadium on Saturday.
“We are the home team and we have decided to move the match to Kisumu,” Aduda told Goal today.
“We don’t have fans in Machakos and hence the decision to shift the game to Kisumu, where we have many fans and we know they will turn in large numbers to support the team.”
He also added that the club will use the e-ticketing platform for fans willing to attend the match on Saturday.
“We want to maximise on the revenue we get from gate collections and also bring order when it comes to fans purchasing tickets. We will not accept cash at the gates, and anyone intending to attend the match should purchase his or her ticket online.”
The champs are back like they left!we are back to local action! Kisumu will be painted Green and White as we take on Tusker in our first outing of the 2019/20 KPL season this Saturday, it will also be a home coming for our new Captain Kenneth Muguna, Mboka are you ready? #Sirkal pic.twitter.com/cOCGpuric8
