Blow as three stadia fall shot of Caf expectations

Three of the five stadia picked for inspection ahead of Chan 2018 tournament have not impressed Caf officials

Kenya’s chances of hosting the Chan 2018 tournament hang in the balance following the unsatisfactory gestures shown by Caf inspectors.

The officials started their job on Monday with inspection at Nyayo National Stadium where they never expressed complete comfort with the facility.

They then moved to Eldoret’s Kipchoge Keino stadium the next day and the facility never impressed as well putting Kenya at a tricky position in their bid to host the continental tournament.

On their third day (Wednesday) in the country, Machakos County stadium was inspected and the reaction was the same; not at a position to host matches of Chan caliber.

Today (Thursday), the roads are headed to Meru where they are going to inspect Kinoru stadium and hotels around it including Alba, Slopes, Three Steers, Elsa and Westwind. They will also check the conditions of four training venues namely Meru School, Meru Teachers Training College, Meru Polytechnic and Meru Show ground.

FKF Upper Eastern Secretary General Ken Rungu has expressed confidence in the Kinoru Stadium’s standard predicting that the Caf officials will definitely like it.

“The Stadium has been refurbished and put to standards which can never let us down at the moment. I think we will pass the test or maybe take some little recommendations from the officials,” he told Goal.
