The Kenya Rugby Union is planning to increase RFUEA ground’s sitting capacity by 3,000 more seats ahead of Safari 7s in November.

KRU has already put up an advertisement inviting bids for the development of ground infrastructure to increase hardwood bench seating capacity or grass roll within the facility by 3,000 seats.

For the three-day event, KRU is expecting 4,000 fans on Friday, 8,000 on Saturday and 8,000 on Sunday. RFUEA recently hosted the Africa Gold Cup matches as well as the test against Germany which was packed.

The development will be on the east side of the (Ligi Ndogo) side of the pitch. Seating be of hard wood benches or grass roll.

Bids must be received before September 14, 2017 meaning the contractor will have less than two months to complete the job.

Safari 7s returns to RFUEA after moving to Nyayo Stadium and Kasarani Stadium. 2016 and 2015 saw the least number of fans attend the tournament forcing KRU to re-think their plan. 

KRU says project initiation phase must be completed by 27th September, planning phase by 4th October and completion by October 31st.

KRU will pay 50% of the contract amount in advance and the balance within 90 days on completion of the project to the satisfaction of the KRU.
