Leopards will not compensate opponents

23 October 2014, 19:00

Nairobi - AFC Leopards have zero intention of compensating opponents for revenues lost, despite being ordered to do so by the Kenyan Football Federation.

The Football Kenya Federation on Wednesday hit Ingwe with a KES 500,000 fine, as well as other numerous sanctions, for the fan violence in October which saw their KPL clash against Sofapaka abandoned.

One of the rulings states that Leopards will play all their remaining games this term without any fans present, even at away matches, meaning Chemelil Sugar and Bandari, who will host the Nairobi giants in two of their final three league ties, will be due compensation.

Reports suggest Ingwe will now need to fork out around KES 2m in various costs, but Leopards' organizing secretary Timothy Lilumbi insists they will be doing nothing of the sort.

"I want to state categorically that it will not happen. What the fans did was unacceptable and we accept all the other sanctions slapped on us except being required to compensate our opponents," Lilumbi told Standard Digital.

"The truth of the matter is, those teams hardly collect KES 10,000 during their matches and we should not be forced to pay them. That is something we are ready to fight against to the end."
