Last season, Vipers SC earned a double victory against Proline FC before they got relegated from the top tier league.
The Venoms are seeking to make their third final in the last four years and perhaps win the annual knockout tournament for the second time since 2016 when we defeated Onduparaka FC.
To reach the quarterfinal stage, Vipers SC had eliminated Kiboga Young FC at the round of 16 thanks to Abraham Ndugwa’s late winner.
Prior to that, the Venoms had dumped out Kansai Plascon at the round of 32 while Rushekere Growers FC didn’t make the trip to St. Mary’s Kitende thus the team getting a walkover at the round of 32.
