Football Kenya Federation have scheduled a press briefing on Tuesday afternoon over 2017 fixtures released by Kenyan Premier League Limited on Monday.
Zoo Kericho and Nakumatt were promoted having agreed on an 18-team top league while the other 2016 National Super League clubs; Vihiga United and KCB earned their promotion after complying with Caf Club Licensing requirements.
Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka failed to meet the threshold and were relegated to the country’s second tier but KPL went against the federation’s plan to release a 16-team league fixtures raising further eyebrows on whether the topflight league will have 18 teams or 16 teams in 2017.
FKF have now moved with speed to convene a press meeting from which they will make clear their stand on the entire issue. Rumour has it that top KPL officials will be banned from active football for ‘derailing the sport’s growth in Kenya’.
The briefing will be held at the federation’s offices in Kasarani as from 2:00pm.
