Confusion as High Court suspends start of Kenyan Premier League

20 February 2015, 19:01 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has suspended the start of the 2015 Kenyan Premier League as the situation in the local game further deteriorated.

The court stopped the beginning of the season until March 3, 2015 in-order to have a decision on the legality of the league made by the court.

The Football Kenya Federation FKF contends that the league under its current format is illegal and that it should not continue as the FKF, as the body mandated to run football in the country does not recognize the Kenyan Premier League LTD.

This follows wrangles that have hit the top flight league after the two bodies, FKF and KPL fell out.

The genesis of the disagreements was FKF insisting that it wants an 18 team league as compared to the 16 KPL has been having in recent times.

The FKF also wanted the league's sponsorship which is currently under pay TV provider Supersport and Tusker to be reviewed and tendered afresh.

However, the 14 top flight clubs had stated that they will stick with the KPL league and would not go with the FKF league, which threw a spanner in the works for the Federation.

In a reactory move, the FKF promoted 14 teams Thursday to make up the top flight in place of the other 14 teams that had refused to take part in their league.

The move will be a blow to soccer fans as well as players who are the most affected by the boardroom wrangling.

The players have already started a social media campaign called #Bringmygameback, aiming to put pressure on officials to agree to end the current stalemate.
