Kenya's friendly match against Jamaica postponed

Kenya were knocked out of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations by Togo

A friendly match between Kenya and Jamaica that was scheduled to be played on Saturday has been postponed because of poor ticket sales.

The game was to be held in the United States at the 40,000-seater Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.

Samuel Sampson, a spokesman for Singapore-based promoter Ricky Swen and his company, Swen Labels International, said only 120 tickets were sold.

Football Kenya Federation hopes the game will be rearranged.

Kenya are keen to play the match as preparation for their 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

After being knocked out of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers by Togo in June, the Harambee Stars have no competitive fixtures before they take on Nigeria in March next year.
