Leopards threaten Top 8 forfeit

13 June 2014, 14:17

Nairobi - The Kenyan Premier League has told AFC Leopards they risk forfeiting the Top 8 final if they follow through on their threats to boycott the encounter.

Ingwe are set to take on fellow Kenyan giants Tusker FC in Meru on Sunday, but feel their opponents will have an unfair advantage as the proposed venue, the Kinoru Stadium, is home to the Brewers.

That has led to the Nairobi outfit refusing to play at the venue, although the KPL are unwilling to alter the decision, and have told Leopards they risk being ejected from the tournament should they fail to show up on the day.

KPL CEO Jack Oguda told Daily Nation: "I have not received any official communication from Leopards but the law says any team that fails to honour a match in our competitions forfeits the tie and also could be in line for further disciplinary action."

Leopards’ secretary-general George Aladwa had earlier this week announced their intentions to shun the match, having said: "Kinoru Stadium is Tusker’s home ground, besides other teams have also complained about the poor condition of that pitch.

"We will not play there. They (might) as well pick KCB to play in the final."
