These teams will be in action in the national quarterfinal fixtures set for Saturday 28 February across the country.

Kisumu were relegated from the Kenya Cup at the close of the 2013/14 season and are intent on making a maiden appearance in the country’s top tier but must first overcome the challenge they face in the form of Kisumu.
