The Kenyan Premier League will have a new broadcast partner in 2019, says KPL Chief Executive Officer Jack Oguda.

Oguda has exuded confidence that a new deal will be reached, but not this season.

Goal can authoritatively reveal that Chinese Pay Television provider, StarTimes is among the top potential partners on the table as KPL seeks to find a replacement for SuperSport.

“StarTimes was among the potential partners we were engaging last time, but the deal flopped. We will continue to engage them and who knows, they may take it up.

"They have shown interest in the Kenyan Premier League, but I can’t expressly say whether they (StarTimes) are coming on board at the moment.

"What I know is that the league will have a new broadcast partner next season. This season is a bit tricky because of the new changes being experienced in the league,” Oguda told Goal.

The 2018 KPL season is set to wrap up on the first week of October as Kenya starts implementation of a Caf directive to align all African leagues with the European calendar by 2023.
