Nairobi, KENYA: If you are yet to make your way to Kasarani Stadium for the Kenya VS Ethiopia game, better hurry because the stadium is almost full.

Kenyans thronged Kasarani Stadium more than six hours before the kick-off of the Kenya vs Ethiopia AFCON qualifier game.

With the #KenyavsEthiopia trending from morning, Kenyans shared pictures of long queues entering Kasarani Stadium with some even giving a glimpse of the status inside the stadium.

The government had announced on Thursday this week that entry to Kasarani Stadium for the game will be free.

In a statement, sports Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Eches said the move was to ensure that Kenya qualifies for the AFCON 2019 championship to be held in Cameroon.

“I wish to announce that entrance to the stadium at Kasarani will be free of charge to allow Kenyans cheer their team to victory. Consequently, it’s important that as patriotic Kenyans it is our duty to support the team unreservedly,” reads the statement in part.
