In the men's conquest , GSU reclaimed their title last won in 2013 as they dethroned Kenya Prisons for the 2015 title after finishing at the top of the league standings ahead of Prisons.

KPA finished in third place , announcing their potential for title contention in the coming season.

Though they tied on points (3) KCB  finished in third place ahead of Nairobi water.

Speaking after the match in Mombasa,  Kenya Prisons head coach David Lung'aho praised the performance of his team saying , "My team lost fighting to a more experienced Pipeline but our target is to build a new outfit . At the playoffs, we used a team of average age of 20 and the way they played I can only tell other teams to watch this space."
