In 2018, Kisumu brought forward their bid to host this specific fixture and KRU ( gave them the go ahead. “Having the match take place in Kisumu is part of the KRU Strategies to decentralize the international fixtures. Other Clubs are also encouraged to tender in their bids to host other internationals going forward since it plays a big role in boosting their infrastructures as well as growing the game. Already Clubs have shown that they are capable of drawing huge crowds and we have seen this from Kisumu during the #Dala7s which attracts the largest crowd during the Stanbic Bank National Sevens Circuit,” said The KRU Vice Chairman, Thomas Opiyo.

Speaking at the launch, Kisumu County Governor Prof. Anyang’ Nyong’o  “This is the second time we are having a launch with Rugby in Kisumu County and hopefully not the last. Our aim is to make sure we fully support sports in the County so that the Nation can have a building ground for its athletes and sportsmen with support from the County. Devolution means that everyone in the Country in all areas of life feels included.”
