Quarter-finalsEdit

The quarter-finals were played on the weekend of 6–7 October.[5] The FKF changed two of the fixtures for the round, meaning that A.F.C. Leopards and K.R.A. were now to meet Karuturi Sports and Sofapaka respectively.[12] The decision raised many eyebrows as questions arose regarding the true motive behind the FKF's decision.[14]

Semi-finalsEdit

The semi-finals are being played on the weekend of 17–18 November.[7] They were to be played on the weekend on 20–21 October,[15] but the dates were pushed so as not to clash with the Kenyan Premier League schedule.[16]

FinalEdit

The final was played on 20 November at the Nyayo National Stadium.[17] Gor Mahia won 3–0 on penalties to win the title a record 10th time.
