Gor Mahia will host Thika United at Nyayo Stadium on Sunday in a league tie in their first home game in Nairobi this year.

They played away to AFC Leopards in a derby match at the same venue early this month when the Stadia Management Board gave them the green light to use the field despite the renovations that are going on there and at Kasarani stadium in readiness for the IAAF World Youth Championships in July.

Gor Mahia’s deputy secretary-general Ronald Ngala said the team welcomed the decision. “Having played many matches away from Nairobi since the season kicked off, it is a relief to have our first home match at Nyayo stadium,” Ngala told The Standard Sports.

He added: “We want to finish the first leg matches on a high and we are calling on fans to turn out in numbers to offer the needed support to the team.”

The club’s chief executive officer, Ludovick Aduda, said: “The team is focused, training is running as scheduled, and everything is in place for Sunday’s match. We are having a pre-event meeting with all suppliers today and we will finalise all the elements required in readiness for the match.”
