Kenyan Premier League are still negotiating with a number of local channels to air the start of the league this weekend.

KPL CEO Jack Oguda has revealed to Goal that local TV channels KTN, Citizen, K24 and NTV have shown keen interest to sign the deal and that it will be made public by Friday.

“We are still negotiating with a number of local channels and so far so good, the response looks positive. We will have a final answer on, who will transmit the league matches before Friday.”

Meanwhile, Oguda says the league will kick-off as planned despite lacking a sponsor. Title sponsors SportPesa withdrew in January citing the 35% tax order from the government.

“We will go ahead with the league as we continue to search for a new sponsor. We cannot stop just because we don’t have a sponsor. We rather use the chance to market our league so that we can invite sponsors to negotiation table.”

The Kenyan top flight will kick-off across various venues in the country this weekend. Gor Mahia will be seeking to defend the title they won last season with four matches to spare.
