The winning team of the 2018 SportPesa Super Cup will travel to England to face Everton, the gaming giants announced Thursday.

This year's edition will feature eight clubs from Kenya and Tanzania and will be played at the refurbished Kasarani Stadium from July 3 to 10, with the winner set to face the Merseyside club at Goodison Park.

Kenya will be represented in the second edition of the tourney with bigwigs Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards as well as Kakamega Homeboyz and Kariobangi Sharks, with Tanzania fielding Simba, Yanga, Singida and Zanzibar Champions JKU.

"It's another opportunity to expose teams from this region across the world which would obviously improve our quality," said Kevin Twissa, SportPesa Chief Marketing Officer.

The winning team will also pocket Sh3 million.

Gor Mahia played Everton in the inaugural final last year in Tanzania losing 2-1.
