The tournament will adopt the Olympic and Commonwealth games format of 12 teams as announced by KRU last week: “This is in line with other international events like the Olympics and the recently concluded Commonwealth Games and will provide both competition and entertainment over the 2 days of the main event.”
Kenya7s are the defending champions after beating Samurai International 38-21 in the 2016 edition held at Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.
The tournament returns to the RFUEA Grounds after an eight-year hiatus which saw Nyayo Stadium host the tournament in 2011 and 2012 and Moi International Sports Center taking over from 2013-2016. The matches will be aired on Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) which will be the official television broadcasters.
