The 2021-22 Kenya Cup season will kick off this Saturday with all the 12 sides set to participate.

There are six matches on the cards across the nation in a season which will once again be played on a one off, round robin basis with the top four teams qualifying for the semifinal playoffs with the final slated for March 5, 2022.

 No team will be allowed to field players not yet fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Strathmore Leos get the new season underway when they host Topfry Nakuru in the day’s early kick off at the RFUEA Ground.

This match will pave the way for the Ngong Road derby when hosts Kenya Harlequin and Resolution Impala Saracens face off in the subsequent fixture at the RFUEA.

Last season’s runners up Kabras Sugar will be at home to Kenyatta University’s Blak Blad at the Moi Showground, Kakamega with Masinde Muliro hosting Nondescripts at the MMUST Campus in Lurambi, Kakamega.

Menengai Oilers welcome Mwamba to the Moi Showground, Nakuru while defending champions KCB host Homeboyz at the KCB Sports Club in Ruaraka, Nairobi.
