Most Kenyans will definitely show up to support Harambee Stars tomorrow as they face Ethiopia in the crucial match that will determine if the country will end the dry spell of participating in the Afcon 2019, in Cameroon.
This call comes after the ministry of sport led by FKF announced that the entrance to watch the game will be free. The call was further backed by Governor of Nairobi , Mike Sonko offering to offer free transport to fans who will be willing to go and watch the game at Kasarani. In fact the Mike Sonko has released 150 buses that will be carrying ferrying people from different places.
Also the Deputy President , William Ruto promised the team 50 million shillings if they manage to beat Ethiopia at Kasarani tomorrow.
The allowances of the players are also sorted and most of them especially international players have had enough time to familiarize with others.
Most Kenyans will show up not only because its free but also the game is during a weekend where most people are out of job. Most are always relaxing at homes with family , this will offer a perfect chance for them to hang out with friends.
Also the English Premier League which commands a lot of support from Kenyan people is on an international break which is more reason why most people will turn up to watch the game at Kasarani.
The whether right now in Nairobi is perfectly fine . Rainy season discourages most people but being sun and a little bit of calmness most people will want and go watch the game.
Also most people are not totally broke as the month is just getting started. The cost of transport for those who will be using public transport vehicles is not that much expensive compared to weekdays.
The starting time of the match is ideal to most Kenyans , 4 is a perfect time for them to prepare enough during the afternoon and reach the stadium on time to witness the much anticipated match.
The prominent players in the squad such as Victor Wanyama who plays for Tottenham Hotspurs and Olunga will definitely attract most of their home supporters who would want to see them play live.
The team will want to impress the home fans as they did during the Ghana Black stars clash last month where Harambee stars won 1-0. Most players will want to show their prowess.
The last time Harambee Stars qualified for the Afcon was in 2004 under coach Jacob “Ghost” Mulee. But the team did not perform well, they were knocked out of the group stages. Most players are thirsty to play during the Afcon 2019 which will even increase their ratings and even sell their talents to international market.
The stadium will be definitely full and some will even watch from the screens outside the stadium.
