“The goal of both KRU and Safaricom is to grow the stature of rugby in Kenya by driving fan attendance which will be a major boost to our ultimate agenda which is to secure an IRB leg,” said Safaricom’s Marketing Director, Rita Okuthe.

The tournament which attracts international teams is the culmination of the Safaricom sponsored rugby extravaganza dubbed the Safaricom Sevens Series which comprised the Kisumu Dala Sevens, Nairobi’s Kabeberi and Christie Sevens, Mombasa’s Driftwood and Nakuru Prinsloo

. “We believe that this year we are setting new standards for Sevens rugby. This will certainly contribute significantly in our bid to host a leg in the IRB series. Our teams have also come of age, and we are sure that they will give leading international teams a run for their money” said KRU chairman Mwangi Muthee.

Organisers have cautioned fans to purchase original tickets to avoid disappointment. “Those found in possession of fake tickets will be arrested on the spot,” warned Muthee.
