This Sunday at Nyayo National Stadium, we will be having the 95th edition of Kenya’s biggest game Mashemeji Derby. The match will kick off at 3.00pm. Club’s media caught up with the head coach Tomas Trucha who will be leading his charges for the first time in the match and he had this to say about the derby :

“Everybody is prepared, the mood in the camp is good which is a motivation by itself for this game. It is a big game not only in Kenya but also in Africa. For me this is my first time I oversee the team in the Mashemeji Derby, I am looking forward to it and I will enjoy.”

About studying his Sunday’s opponent Trucha said, “Both teams are planning and training for each other .It is all about tactical, mental and physical preparation. We take the match as a challenge  because we will be facing the league champions who are currently the league leaders. For us it’s a challenge to succeed and prepare something special for them. Remember derbies never have favorites, there’s no underdog . Its always a fight to know which team comes out the best so both teams will come to the match ready to give it all.”

To our dedicated AFC Leopards fans, “Thank you so much for turning up in number for our away match in Machakos. We felt more home than the home team. I believe on Sunday you will show up more than opponents. Lets us paint Nyayo Stadium blue and white. We will have a big crowd for the derby because I also expect  our rival fans to turn up in numbers for the much awaited derby.”

VIP tickets for the match will be sold at 1000/= while Terrace tickets will be sold at 300/=. Ticketing  points will be communicated later.
