With the conclusion of the Kenya Cup league phase, attention now shifts to the Top Six playoffs which kick off on Saturday 23 April with two exciting fixtures, one in Kakamega and another in Nairobi.

What’s in store for the winners of these fixtures? A trip to the semifinals and with that, clashes with Resolution Impala Saracens and Kenya Harlequin who received byes after claiming the top two places in the league phase.

Kabras Sugar recovered from a slow and sometimes tentative campaign, gathering enough momentum to finish third and draw a home fixture against former champions Top Fry Nakuru who have, by their lofty standards, struggled for consistency. This match takes place at the Kakamega Showground. The winner of this match proceeds to face Kenya Harlequin away on Saturday 30 April.

The second fixture on the cards is at the Jamhuri Park and pits Menengai Cream Homeboyz who huffed and puffed to finish fourth up against champions KCB who, after a series of Jekyll and Hyde performances, secured a playoff berth. The winner of this match plays away to Resolution Impala Saracens on Saturday 30 April.
