Football Kenya Federation has waived entry charges for Tuesday’s Harambee Starlets Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier return leg against Algeria.

The match is poised to kick off from 4pm and will be played at the 60,000 capacity Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani.

Starlets held Algeria to a 2-2 draw during the first leg match in Algiers on Friday to leave David Ouma’s charges with a real chance of making the finals that will be played in Cameroon in November for the first time.

Starlets require victory or to draw the match 0-0 or 1-1 draws to join seven other teams that will grace the 12th edition of the women’s showpiece that will be held in Cameroon from November 19 to December 3.

FKF CEO, Robert Muthomi said the decision was made to give the team much needed support and in an effort of raising the profile of the women’s game.

“We are on the brink of great result that will propel our women’s team to make a debut at the continent’s top tournament.

“A positive result will spur the development of the game in the country hence the need for our fans to turn out in large numbers and offer much needed support,” he added.

The Algerian women’s team arrived on Sunday morning.
