Tusker will kick off their defence of the GoTV Shield Tournament against SS Asaad at the KPA Mbaraki Sports Club on Sunday, June 25, 2017

Several matches have been lined up for the weekend, with last year’s runners-up Ulinzi Stars and Kenya Premier League sides AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia also in action. The round of 64 will pit Kenya Premier League and National Super League sides against lower tier clubs


Tusker won last year’s edition after a hard fought 1-0 win over Ulinzi Stars at the Nyayo National Stadium. The solitary goal was scored by Allan Wanga on the half hour mark. The Brewers had edged out KCB in the semi-final via a Noah Wafula goal. In the run-up to the final, Tusker had brushed aside Posta Rangers, Zetech University, Uprising and Machakos United

Ulinzi Stars booked a ticket to the final after brushing aside Kariobangi Sharks 4-1 in the semi-final. John-Mark Makwatta was the star of the day, scoring a hat-trick to add to a strike by Oscar Wamalwa. Steven Odhiambo scored Sharks consolation

Kariobangi Sharks won the third place play-off against KCB in dramatic fashion, the match ending 5-2. Nicholas Kamau opened the scores for KCB in the 10th minute before Rodgers Omondi restored parity for a 1-1 half time score. Sharks went on the rampage in the second half, scoring four more goals via Patilla Omotto, Eric Juma and a brace by Steven Odhiambo. Job Omuse added a consolation for Sharks late on for KCB
