SoNy Sugar happy to get justice

22 August 2014, 09:13

Nairobi - SoNy Sugar are happy to get justice after their clash with AFC Leopards was ordered replayed after a judicial hearing.

The Kenyan Premier League judicial body IDCC ruled Thursday that it was unfair for the KPL to award Leopards the game under the circumstances.

The match was to be played at the Awendo Green Stadium but it was moved to Nakuru's Afraha Stadium at the last minute by KPL.

IDCC said it was too soon to move the game to a far away place without giving SoNy sufficient chance to prepare.

" Should the (KPL) Stadia and Security Committee establish that Awendo Green Stadium is not a suitable and secure venue for hosting KPL matches, it shall clearly indicate what actions Sony Sugar FC must take to ensure the suitability of Awendo Green Stadium, and provide a time frame within which it shall ascertain compliance with the required actions.

" The Kenyan Premier League shall reimburse AFC Leopards SC the expenses it incurred in relation to Match No. 158. In this respect, AFC Leopards SC shall present to the Kenyan Premier League proof of the said expenses by the 29th of August 2014, the statement read.

The match will now be played on a soon to be announced date, with Leopards forced to fight for three points they had been awarded.
