Kariobangi Sharks will face AFC Leopards in the final of the GOtv Shield after the premier league sides dispatched Sony Sugar and Vihiga United respectively in the semifinals played on September 24, 2017, at the Afraha Stadium

Kariobangi Sharks edged out Sony Sugar 2-0 in the first semifinal match played at 12 pm. Masud Juma got Sharks on the front foot in the 28th minute for a 1-0 lead at halftime before confirming Sharks’ place in the final with his second goal ten minutes from time

In the second match, all seemed to be heading for a draw before AFC Leopards forward Alexis Kitenge scored from the spot five minutes from time after a handball by Vihiga United’s Edwin Mukoya in the box. AFC would then hold on to the lead to see themselves through to the final with 1-0 win over the National Super League leaders

The two teams will face off in the final, slated for October 20, 2017, with the winner set to represent Kenya in the CAF Confederations Cup next year
