2017 Kenyan Premier League will have 18 teams with KCB and Vihiga United included in the fixtures

Football Kenya Federation have promoted National Super League sides KCB and Vihiga United to the country’s top flight Kenyan Premier League.

This is after Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka completely failed to comply with the Caf Club Licensing requirements.

Three clubs; (Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka) plus Thika United, were relegated when the deadline for complying with the law passed but they went ahead to appeal against the federation’s decision.

Their appeal was heard by FKF’s Independent Disciplinary and Appeals Committee, who ruled that they be accorded an opportunity to resubmit their Club Licensing documents, and after going through the papers, only Thika United passed the test.

On Thursday, February 2, the President of FKF Nick Mwendwa, confirmed the Independent Club Licensing Committee’s report in a presser held at the federation’s offices dropping the two clubs (Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka) and confirming two (KCB and Vihiga United) from the second tier league to fill the gap.

KCB and Vihiga United finished fifth and sixth respectively in National Super League last season and they now join Nzoia Sugar, Kariobangi Sharks, Zoo Kericho and Nakumatt at the top flight.
