Harambee Stars which is the Kenya national team is seeking to end its dry spell by qualify to the World Cup competition to be held in Qatar next year.
Harambee Stars is set to enjoy home advantage in crucial first and last fixtures the World Cup qualifiers that are set to kick off later on in June.
Kenya are in group E and are pooled alongside Mali, Uganda and Rwanda. In that group, none of the teams has ever managed to reach the World Cup in the history and all sides will be looking to maximize on the chance this time round. Harambee Stars will be looking to maximize on home advantage after the poor record on home ground saw them miss a ticket in successive Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.
Harambee Stars host Uganda in the first match that is slotted for the weekend of 5th or 6th of June.
The second fixture sees Kenya travel away to Rwanda the following weekend with the match set around 12th or 13th.
Third round match sees Kenya fly to Mali on 3rd or 4th of September before playing hosts days later either on 6th or 7th of the same month.
The fifth clash of the qualifiers sees the team make a short trip to Uganda on the 6th or 7th of October before concluding the qualifiers with a home game against Rwanda on the 11 or 12th of October.
Harambee Stars will be seeking redemption when they start the qualifier after disappointingly crashing out of AFCON 2022.
