The final round of Division One League matches is set to be played on October 21, 2018, with Naivas FC and Mwatate United battling it out for a promotion play-off spot in Zone A.

This comes after Fortune Sacco opened up an unassailable eight-point lead that guaranteed them automatic qualification to the second tier FKF National Super League.

Naivas is second with 52 points, only one more than third-placed Mwatate United. The Division One League debutants will be up against MOSCA at the Sameer Grounds along Mombasa road on Saturday while Mwatate United will face off with Mitunguu United at the Wundanyi Stadium.

The second placed team at the end of the day will face off with Zone B side Shabana in a one-off promotion playoff that will determine which team joins Zone A champions Fortune Sacco and their Zone B counterparts Eldoret Youth in the 2019 second tier league. Shabana is assured of second place ahead of their final match of the season against Poror Mote.
