Muhoroni Youth fined as stadium ban is lifted

Muhoroni Stadium was banned by Football Kenya Federation following the chaos that erupted during a league match

Muhoroni Youth has been fine Sh150, 000 but got a lifeline after The Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee lifted ban slapped on their Stadium. 

The stadium was banned by Football Kenya Federation following the chaos that erupted during a Kenyan Premier League match against Nzoia Sugar last May.

“From the foregoing, the commission finds MYFC (Muhoroni Youth FC) guilty of breach of Rule 3.4 (a) and Rule 3.5(b). We, however, dismiss the prayer that the stadium should be banned as requested by Nzoia.

“We also note that the KPL mysteriously did not include this as a prayer in the charge sheet, to begin with. It, however, proves inconsequential in light of our decision to dismiss the prayer,” reads part of the judgment delivered by the KPL-disciplinary body and obtained by Goal.

“In this regard, we accordingly invoke Rule 7.3 (c) (ii) and fine MYFC the sum of Kshs. 150,000/- for their misconduct. We charge MYFC to strictly adhere to rules in the future, and in the interest of the greater good of the sport, and for the safety and well-being of their cherished fans and visiting fans.”

Muhoroni Youth was ordered to pay the fine within 30 days of the date of the ruling.
