FKF release President’s Cup rule book

Gor Mahia
Futaa

Ahead of a planned draw on Monday 30 July 2012 for the FKF/President’s Cup, Football Kenya federation (FKF) has provided a rule book within which the tournament will be run.

Disparities in detail

The guide for the knockout tournament clarifies entry requirements and fees for the tournament, its organization, appeals and protests, player participation numbers amongst others.

However there are certain disparities in detail spelt out in the rule book in relation to recent communication from FKF that will need to be clarified.

Standardize on 64 teams

Article 2 of the rule book states; each club shall pay Kshs. 20,000/= as entry fees. The last 16 clubs in the competition shall pay a further Kshs. 5,000/= as additional entry fees.

Recent communication stated participation fees to be Kshs 15,000 and there was no mention of extra fees.

According to article 4; Form and Organization, the competition shall standardize on 64 teams. Where the number exceeds 64, then Preliminary matches shall be played by the last ranked teams so that the first round matches start with 64 teams.

CAF Confederations Cup

A recent communication had stated the competition targeted 76 teams; 16 in the Kenyan Premier League, the 40 in Division One and 20 in the Provinces.

Like in all other years, the winner of the Domestic Cup will represent Kenya in the CAF Confederations Cup.
