Kenyan Premier League have released fixtures for season 2017.

Notably, Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka, who were relegated by Football Kenya Federation, for failing to comply with Caf Club Licensing requirements, have been included in the fixtures.

Another point of interest is the fact that Zoo Kericho and Nakumatt, who were promoted by the federation to the top tier league having finished third and fourth respectively on the 2016 National Super League table, have been omitted from the list.
