The match against K’Ogalo was to be played on Saturday at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega, but was officially called off

AFC Leopards will petition Football Kenya Federation to refund them money used to prepare for the postponed derby against Gor Mahia.

The match against K’Ogalo was to be played on Saturday at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega, but was officially called off on Wednesday to allow Harambee Stars play two friendly matches against Swaziland and Equatorial Guinea.

Ingwe Secretary General Oscar Igaida says the Federation will have to refund the team.

“We had used a lot of money to prepare for this match, and now that it is not our fault that it has been postponed, we should be refunded.

"We will forward the invoices to the FKF, and request them to give back what we had used in preparation for the game,” Igaida told Goal.
