Kenya and Uganda have clashed 31 times since 1958 and the Elgon Cup first leg clash in Kisumu will be the 32nd meeting between two sides who have a bitter rivalry on the pitch and amazing camaraderie off of it.

Kenya lead the overall head to head with 21 wins while Uganda has registered 9 wins. There has been one draw between the two sides.

Their first meeting, according to official record books was on 24 May 1958 in Kampala, Kenya posting a 21-11 win over their opponents.

It would be 39 years before the two sides met again, Kenya picking up from that win in Kampala with a 65-8 demolition job of the Rugby Cranes at the RFUEA Ground on 23 August 1997. They would post three more wins before Uganda notched up their first ever win against Kenya, posting a 31-22 result over the Simbas in Nairobi on 5 October 2002.

When the two sides step out on to the Mamboleo Showground turf on Saturday 22 June 2019, it will not only be regional bragging rights in the form of the Elgon Cup in store but also history being created with the first ever international rugby fixture taking place in Kisumu City.
