49 clubs hoping to participate in the 2013 Division one leagues are at a loss as none of them can register any of its players.
In the past season, Football Kenya Federation (FKF) introduced a paperless way of registration – an online platform where all clubs logged in to seamlessly register their players, with terms of engagement, for the season.
The same platform was extended to all the 12 teams that participated in the FKF Girls Premier League as well as to Provincial clubs – Nairobi being the biggest user.
However, with less than two weeks to the league kick off, clubs, most of whom have complained to futaa.com of the same, are stranded as the Player Registration System (PRS) is inaccessible.
The Chair of Leagues and competitions at FKF Doris Petra quashed any talk of the system having been taken down by the developer for none payment and had this to say when contacted for comment.
Clubs will each pay FKF Kshs 15,000
-We are aware that the system is not available for use at the moment but we are working to see it is back up either tomorrow or the day after.
In the breakdown of payments for participation in the league this season, each club was charged Kshs 500 to register a player. For a maximum of 30 players, clubs will each pay FKF Kshs 15,000, a total of Kshs 735,000 for all 49 clubs, monies earmarked for maintenance of the PRS system.
