Football Kenya Federation has confirmed Kisumu All Stars as a replacement for the disbanded Palos FC in the lower league

It’s now official. Football Kenya Federation has confirmed Kisumu All Stars as a replacement for the disbanded Palos FC in the National Super League.

According to the round one NSL fixture released on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, by the FKF leagues and competitions manager Frank Ogolla, the revived Lakeside City club will make their debut against St.Joseph FC from Nakuru at Kisumu Stadium on Saturday.

This is after Kisumu Governor Hon. Anyang Nyong’o expressed commitment and confirmed his government support for the revival of Kisumu Hot Stars to replace Palos in the lower league.

Palos had towards the end of last year communicated to the federation their withdrawal from the second tier league for the 2018 season and the leagues and competitions committee promised to give direction on the criteria for replacement.

FKF President Nick Mwendwa commended the governors’ effort in supporting the development of football in the county.

“After Palos wrote to us that they were withdrawing we were concerned but after consultations with Professor Nyongo we were happy that he is going to help the void left by Palos in the NSL.”

In their latest pre-season friendly played last week at Moi Stadium, Kisumu All Stars went down 1-0 to Kenya Premier League newbies Vihiga United.
