The incident occured Saturday at Nyayo National Stadium in Nairobi, BBC reported. Six people were killed at the stadium, while another person died later in a hospital, Kenyan officials said. The stampede started after a group of people without tickets tried to storm through a stadium entrance, CNN reported.
"When the gate fell, people were pushed down and others stepped on them in their rush to get in," Frank Okoth, a manager at Kenyan Premier League, said.
Many others were injured, but it is unknown how many, authorities said.
