Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth fans have lost case on the inclusion of their clubs in KPL

A Kisumu High Court has thrown out a case filed by both Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth suing Football Kenya Federation and Kenyan Premier League Limited.

The two teams had moved to court seeking to compel FKF and KPL to include them in this season’s league fixtures. They were acting after FKF moved to relegate them for failing to comply with Caf licensing rules.

The Kisumu court dismissed their application for being incompetent and advised the affected parties to file a fresh case if they are not satisfied by the court verdict. The outcome of the case now gives FKF and KPL the go ahead to release fixtures for 2017 season.

A source in FKF, who did not want to be named, told Goal that the 2017 season fixtures will be released either today (Thursday) or tomorrow (Friday). “Now that the case has been dismissed, we are working on the fixtures for 2017 season. They should be ready by either today or tomorrow (Friday).”
