After four weeks of great Kenyan University FIFA, the curtains close this Friday with the final four Conference teams battling it out in the e-Lig Series finals event dubbed The Fainali.
The Fainali will run as the final event of the University FIFA Esports inviting four conference teams from the qualification weekends. As earlier reported, the second-placed teams were to meet in the 3rd/4th play-off match but we have re-formatted the Fainali event to have a direct semi-final play-off between the teams with the winners from each of the matches getting a direct ticket to 1st/2nd place match while the losers head directly for the 3rd/4th place play-offs.
“Conference teams that finished first place in their respective groups will face off with the second-placed team from the other group e.g. Winner from Group A (1A) plays second-place from Group B (2B).”
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS
As the e-Lig series comes to an end, it all comes down to the mental and psychological state of the players who will battle it out from home. The Nairobi region-based teams seem to be favorites heading into the final but this is Kenyan FIFA- anything can happen.
The first semi-final of the day will see Nairobi North Conference (JKUAT) Njiru Njeru take on Central Conference (KeMU) Victor Mwangi. Everything is on the line for Victor coming from a loss handed to him by UONs Frank Kibet while JKUATs Njiru Njeru will be entering this match with only one mission – TO WIN.
The second semi-final will see the tournament favorite Frank Kibet take on Kisii University player Feswall Abdalla. Can Feswall Abdalla of Kisii University with his defensive play stop Frank’s offensive plays? Can Feswall Abdalla stand up to the pressure?
