Homeless Bidco heighten search for new home ground

Bidco United will be forced to use Meru’s Kinoru stadium at least for the first opening matches before they settle on a convenient ground of choice.

The Thika based club have been hosting NSL matches at Thika Municipal Stadium for a couple of years, but regrettably the stadium was marked as ‘unfit’ for top flight leagues in the country over its poor state, leaving them with no proper home ground, as the search for a permanent  home venue continues.

The cooking oil manufacturers have been made to host their matches at Kinoru stadium, a move head coach Anthony Akhulia is not comfortable with.

According to the youthful tactician, Kinoru stadium is miles away from their Thika base, hence looking for an alternative venue, closer home.

“We would really love to play at Thika, there are some issues yes and I understand it’s being worked on. The fixtures indicate that we will be playing at Meru but Meru is very far from here so we are looking for alternatives like Kasarani stadium, but if Thika will be given the green light, we will definitely play at Thika Stadium,” Ahkulia told Citizen Digital.

On the football front, following the release of the FKF Premier League fixtures, the PL newbies will have a tough task as they are scheduled to kick off the much awaited campaign against Posta Rangers, AFC Leopards, Ulinzi Stars, Tusker and the league holders Gor Mahia in the first five games.
