Poor crowds mar local soccer matches

16 June 2014, 14:16

Nairobi - The ongoing Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) World Cup in Brazil had an adverse impact on local match attendances this past weekend.

While most leagues across the world are dormant because of the ongoing global showcase in Brazil, it is all systems go in the local Premiership.

This past weekend, the Kenya Premier League (KPL) sanctioned six league matches and one cup game, pitting eventually winners Tusker Football Club and rejuvenated AFC Leopards in the latter.

While the Tusker FC against AFC Leopards encounter was well attended, most league matches witnessed poor fans as many supporters preferred the ongoing FIFA World Cup games in South America.
Tusker beat AFC Leopards 2-1 to lift the Top 8 Trophy while in the league matches, Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) went down 0-2 to Chemelil Sugar.

The victory saw Chemelil Sugar move one place up the ladder to number two with 28 points from 15 matches, only two points behind log leaders Gor Mahia.

However, third positioned Tusker FC, who did not feature in the league tie due to the Top 8 tournament assignment against AFC Leopards boast 27 points from 14 league games but with a game in hand.

Elsewhere, Sony Sugar beat Muhoroni Youth 2 - 1, but remained on sixth position with 22 points from 15 league matches played while Sofapaka were held to 1 - 1 by visiting Ulinzi Stars.

Sofapaka are on fourth position with 25 points from 15 matches while Ulinzi are on 10th with 19 points from 15 matches.

In matches played on Saturday, Mathare United beat visiting Thika United 2 - 1, but their victory did not move them away from 12th position.

In another league encounter, City Stars drew 1 - 1 with Western Stima in an evenly balanced match played on Saturday.
