The War between Football Kenya Federation and The Kenyan Premier League is not about to end any time soon.
The Federation has released a press statement warning Gor Mahia and Sofapaka of dire consequences if they take part in the KPL super cup match set for tomorrow at Nyayo Stadium.
The Cup brings together winners of the KPL title vs. Winners of FKF cup and the unveiling of the trophy as well as cash prizes was held yesterday.
However FKF says they were not consulted or involved in the organizing of the match as well as granting permission for the match to go on.
The statement written by the Federation secretary Michael Esakwa further read any match official who will take part in the match will have his license revoked and face disciplinary sanctions from FKF.
The clubs will also face disciplinary action if they take part in a match that has not been sanctioned by the Football body.
Esakwa further added the Federation remains guided by the resolutions passed during their Special General Meeting held on the 30th of last month. During the meeting, FKF agreed to severed ties with.
The Federation also questioned the timing of the match which will be played 72 hours before both clubs take part in CAF champions League and Confederation Cup of Africa. The continental matches will be played this weekend.
According to FKF, tomorrow’s match pose a huge threat to players who will be representing the country in continental assignments.
Efforts to reach KPL CEO Jack Oguda on the same issue proved futile as our calls went unanswered.
