This will be the first time the competition will be returning to rugby’s spiritual home– the RRFUEA grounds after an eight-year lull; during which it shifted to the Kenya’s sports cathedral – the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani.
“We have sent invites to teams like Portugal, Namibia, Ireland, Wales, South Africa’s Emerging Boks, Spain, Uganda, Blue Bulls Samurai, University of Jo’burg and Western Province. Looking at the invite also is USA Sevens who are looking at giving us a team even if it’s their second side,” said Kamau.
On the same vein, Kamau asked well wishers and stakeholder’s to come on board and help the board raise the Ksh 30 million needed to stage the event.
“We are working with a minimum budget of Ksh30 million but as of now we don’t have a main sponsor; the organizing committee is working on that,” she added.
Kamau also appealed to stakeholders to have trust in the board and the preparations they are making to stage a successful event.
“RFUEA is a small venue but we feel the tournament should come back home. We will have structural improvement; more changing rooms and obviously use Impala and Junction Mall pitches as parking for the visitors so people should not worry about the non issues,” added Kamau.
Kenya 7s are the defending champions after beating Samurai 38-21 at Kasarani Stadium in the 2016 final.
