The excitement in the Kenyan football scene is set to continue this weekend as the Mozzart Bet Cup quarterfinals take center stage.

Eight top teams will battle it out in this do-or-die knockout tournament, with the hope of securing a spot in the semifinals and edge closer to lifting the coveted trophy.

The action kicks off on Saturday at Police Sacco Stadium, where Tusker FC will face KCB at 1 pm, followed by Sofapaka taking on Ulinzi Stars at 3:15 pm. The stage is set for some thrilling encounters, with fans eagerly anticipating the performances of their favorite teams.

Tusker head coach Robert Matano expressed his excitement for the tournament, saying, “In knockouts, any team can win, not like the league. You take your chances, and if you win, you can be closer to the cup. The Mozzart Bet Cup is a very competitive competition, and we are ready to bring our A game on Saturday.”

Meanwhile, KCB head coach Zedekiah Otieno emphasized the importance of their participation in the tournament, ahead of their match against Tusker.

“We entered the tournament to compete and not just to participate. We began our journey in the Mozzart Bet Cup in the round of 32 against MOFA and won 1-0. In the round of 16, we beat Bidco United 4-1 in a post-match penalty shootout. Now we face Tusker again in the tournament,” said Otieno.

On Sunday, the action shifts to MISC Kasarani for a doubleheader. Kakamega Homeboyz will play Kariobangi Sharks in the early kickoff match, followed by AFC Leopards facing Bandari at 3:15 pm to close off the quarterfinals games.

All matches will be LIVE on KBC and Mozzart Bet Cup Facebook Page.

Ticket prices have been set at KES 200 all-round, and will be sold on matchday, at both venues.
