Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has announced free entry to the Kasarani National Stadium, for the 2020 Olympic qualifier between Kenya’s Harambee Starlets and Zambia’s ShePoloPolo. The match has been slated for Friday, November 8, 2019, with the second leg set to be played on November 11, 2019 in Lusaka.
In a tweet, FKF announced that attending fans will not be required to pay any cash before accessing the stadium in a bid to rally up fans to support the girls at the match set to kick off at 4pm. Starlets will be looking to gain an advantage in the first leg as they seek qualification to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. The return leg will be played in Lusaka in November 11.
Kenya had eliminated Ghana in the previous round and has warmed up to the coming tie with a 3-1 loss at the hands of the Kenya men U15 team. The winner of the match on aggregate will make it to the final round where Ivory Coast or Cameroon awaits; the winner of the last round automatically qualifying for the Olympic. The loser will get a lifeline by facing South America's Chile in a playoff; the latter having finished second in the CONMEBOL qualifying tournament.
