The competitive Central Nationwide League is set to start on Saturday, November 25, 2017, alongside all other leagues in the country.
Defending champions Embu RFC are un-involved on match day one as debutants Meru RFC will be making a trip to Kiambu RFC.
Former Kenya Cup side Thika RFC are back to the Nationwide league and will be making a short trip to MKU Thika. MKU Titans are coached by former Thika coach Peter Mutai who led them to Kenya Cup promotion in 2015.
Thika will be seeking to return to the Championship after losing a court appeal that saw them being relegated to the Nationwide.
Chuka Vikings and Dedan Kimathi start the 2017/18 campaign at home against Karatina University and Murang’a RFC respectively.
The last clash of the day will see Zetech Rugby host Nanyuki Jackals.
