Kenyan Premier League clubs are feeling the pinch after the league kick-off was delayed and pushed forward thanks to the wrangles between Kenyan Premier League Limited and the Football Kenya Federation.

Initially, the kick-off date was supposed to be 11th of this month, but was postponed to 25th as per a ruling by Sports Disputes Tribunal. The kick-off has been again pushed to March 5 according to information from KPL.

 AFC Leopards Chairman Dan Mule has revealed that the delays have been costly for the club. "Honestly, as clubs we are really affected by this issue, it has been not smooth at all. The cost of running a club without the league is high, and we make huge losses, not only AFC Leopards, but many teams.

"We hope there will be no further delays and that the league will kick off as scheduled," he told Goal.

AFC Leopards are aiming at finishing the 2017 campaign in top three.
