Goal now understand that SuperSport are headed to sign a new deal with FKF after ditching KPL

SuperSport cited lack of power from Kenyan Premier League in the county’s football management when they terminated the contract on Friday.

They say their License Agreement with KPL was facilitated by the notion that the body had full control of the country’s top flight league until January 2017 when Sports Disputes Tribunal contrarily ruled.

Rumour has it that the South Africa-headquartered broadcaster now wants to pen a deal with Football Kenya Federation so as to avoid any risks associated with such partnerships in the future.

Goal has obtained a communique from the federation calling for a press briefing event to be held on Saturday to discuss the situation with a major announcement expected.

“The finer details regarding the subject matter will be divulged during the briefing, the statement read.

It will be interesting to see how Kenya’s football progresses going forward.
