Koth Biro Semi Finals to resume on Saturday

The annual Koth Biro Soccer Tournament will resume on Saturday at Ziwani’s Umeme Grounds in Nairobi after a short break. The tournament had been stopped by the local Federation FKF following crowd trouble during the first semifinals last weekend.

The Federations blamed officials of the tournament for failing to provide ample security and demanded to be issued with elaborate security measures before the tournament is allowed to continue.

 Fans and teams that turned out for the second semifinal match last Sunday were turned away as the Federation had instructed that the tournament be put on hold after crowd trouble during the first semifinal match between A1000 and Borrusia. The match was abandoned in the 75th minute.

According to communication from organizers, the second semifinal will now be played on Saturday 10TH January as Pumwani United take on Nyoi FC. The winner of this match will meet A1000 Street fc, for the grand finale on Sunday 11th January 2015.

Tournament organizers have assured fans that there will be ample and secure parking with uniformed stewards, armed uniformed and plain clothes policemen for the safety of all in attendance.
