Football fans planning to attend the biggest match of the Kenyan Premier League thus far this season have an extra reason to be excited.

High-flying Gor Mahia will play host to struggling AFC Leopards in the first installment of the Mashemeji derby this season on Saturday.

This clash primed for the Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani is an eagerly-awaited affair which has been generating a lot of excitement and anxiety among the fans on social media all week long.


Besides the action on the pitch, the league’s title sponsors SportPesa have added an extra spice with a promotion dubbed ‘Mashemeji derby Valentine Edition’ in which the best-dressed couple will stand a chance to win an all-expense paid romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day.

In the promotion, couples that dress to kill in their favourite team colours will be entered into a draw for the chance to win a memorable night in Nairobi.

“Couples are requested to turn up dressed in their favorite club colours on the day and take photos at the green screen activation area. These photos will be entered into a draw where they will stand a chance to win one of the best Valentines packages on offer,” a statement from SportPesa read.

Away from matters Valentine’s Day, as usual fans from both sides have been exchanging friendly banter before their teams lock horns in what will definitely not be a friendly affair.
