Kenya Premier League to end on August 22

Football Kenya Federation (FKF)-Premier League will run until the end, said FKF CEO Barry Otieno.

Mr Otieno said the federation has no intention to halt the remaining matches amid the covid-19 pandemic. He said the remaining rounds would be completed by August 22.

According to him, the current schedule will only be affected when the government enforces fresh measures on sporting activities.

“The league will go on as planned until the end of the season because there are five million shillings that the winner has to take home at the end of the season,” said Mr Otieno.

The league was halted in March for almost two months after the government banned public gatherings, including sporting events, to curb the spread of Covid-19.

“This season has been very hectic and we understand how intense it has been for the players. We are hopeful for a better end of the season and a good start to a new season,” he added, noting that the next season kicks off in September 2021.

One of the top four teams could win the title this season. Tusker FC is topping the table with forty-seven points, one ahead of second-placed KCB. AFC Leopards is third with forty points, one ahead of the defending champions Gor Mahia.
