Soy United left it late to knock out MCF in post-match penalties, thereby booking a place in the second tier Betika National Super League, in the Division One League promotion playoff played on Sunday, November 1, 2020, at the Utalii Grounds in Nairobi. The match had ended 1-1 in regulation time.

After a cagey first half, Lwamba Bebeto got MCF on the front foot with a 65th-minute goal.

Soy United would then pull one back in the 77th minute via Timothy Muganda for a 1-1 scoreline.

Neither of the sides could manage a winner in time, and in the resultant shootout, Soy United scored 10, against MCF’s 9, to seal a slot in the second tier.

Earlier on Saturday, Kisumu All Stars had gained an advantage in the FKF Premier League/National Super League promotion/relegation playoff when they drilled out a 2-1 win, away from home. The second leg has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 5, 2020.
