The work at Kasarani was initially set to be completed at the end of March but Kenya’s biggest stadium is yet to be opened

Gor Mahia may be forced to play some of their Caf Confederation Cup matches outside the country should Kasarani not be ready in the next three weeks.

At the moment, there is no standard pitch in Kenya to host a continental assignment according to Caf who have ssued stringent of regulations.

Caf has ruled out Kenyatta Stadium from hosting any of the Group stage matches on security grounds and with Nyayo and Kasarani still under renovation, Gor Mahia may be forced to look for alternative venues, possibly in Rwanda, Tanzania or even Uganda to stage their home ties.

“For preliminary matches, it could suffice, but at this stage, it is out of the question, as it does not have some of the requirements. Should Kasarani not be ready, then we will have no choice but to play some of our home matches either in Kigali, Algeria or Dar-es-Salaam,” Gor Mahia Chief Executive Lodvick Aduda told the Standard.

“The regulations allow for this kind of arrangement, but we hope it will not reach this level and that those working on Kasarani will ensure it is ready before then."

The work at Kasarani was initially set to be completed at the end of March but Kenya’s biggest stadium is yet to be opened.
