thumbnail Hello,

Federation chiefs irked by the aforementioned club's recent moves of touring neighboring Tanzania for friendly matches without getting clearance

Premier league sides Sofapaka FC, Sony Sugar and Nairobi City Stars could face Football Kenya Federation (FKF) disciplinary action for participating in recent international friendly matches without the consent of the federation.

The federation says they are exploring the option of slapping fines on the clubs after they defied the directive of seeking clearance from the country’s football body before participating in such international matches.

Also in the cross hairs is division two side Bandari FC. A statement from the federation’s Media Liaison Officer John Kariuki read in part, “Football Kenya Federation in its National Executive meeting held on Monday raised its concern over the four clubs who traveled outside the country for friendly matches without clearing with the Federation.”

“This is a clear violation of the rules and regulations and City Stars, Sofapaka FC, Sony Sugar F.C and Bandari FC who traveled to Tanzania recently will face serious disciplinary measures.”

The federation added that all clubs and whistle blowers who intend to travel out of the country for any football related activity must seek its consent.

“The Federation wishes to inform all clubs and referees that they must seek clearance before traveling outside the country for any football related matters.”
