FKF President's Cup

The FKF President's Cup (known as the GOtv Shield for sponsorship reasons) is the top knockout tournament in Kenyan football. It was created in 1956, but during its existence the knockout tournament has had different names.[1] It is the Kenyan equivalent to the FA Cup. In 2003 two different cup competition's were held in Kenya because the 4 semi-finalists of the President's Cup withdrew from the KFF and continued with their "Transparency Cup" while the KFF continued their tournament with already eliminated clubs.
