Kenya: 2021 Kenya Cup Season Confirmed to Kick-Off February

19 January 2021

Nairobi — Following clearance from the Ministry of Sport, Culture and Heritage, the 2021 Kenya Cup season will kick-off February 27 to run for 11 match days, Kenya Rugby Union announced.

As the norm, the top four teams will qualify for the semi-finals slated to be played May 22 with the finals scheduled for May 29.

The season will first be preceded by the Kenya Cup qualifiers involving the top six teams from the 2019/20 KRU Championship. These qualifiers will be played February 6 and 13 respectively.

This will then pave way for a league curtain raiser pitting the current holders of the Kenya Cup against the current Enterprise Cup champions. This encounter will be played on Saturday 20 February.

All fixtures will be played in adherence to existing COVID-19 protocols with no spectators in attendance.

Last season, Kenya Rugby Union cancelled then league over the coronavirus pandemic, with Kabras Sugar on the helm.
