KPL has since moved the transfer window from January/June to November/March

The 2018/19 Kenyan Premier League transfer windows are set to change as the domestic league adjusts the calendar in line with Caf directive.

The new season is set to kick off two months earlier, in December and not February as KPL adapts to the newly proposed schedule by the continental mother body. According to Caf, all African leagues should start and end in August and May respectively.  

To effect the changes without much interference with the normal operations of clubs, the new season will run for seven months, starting December early July.

The change in the calendar will also affect the transfer window. KPL has since moved the transfer window from January/June to November/March

“In the 2018/2019 season, we will arrange for a two-week Christmas break plus another break probably in March. These fixtures will be released in a fortnight,” KPL CEO Jack Oguda told Daily Nation.

This means that clubs will have only September and part of October to shop for the new talents before going into full business in November.
