Even after the
Football Kenya Federation was given the green light to increase the Premier
League teams from 16 to 18, it now insists that it is ready to work with only 15 teams in the forthcoming 2017
season, this is according to FKF President Nick Mwendwa.
On Tuesday 10 January 2017, the Sports Disputes Tribunal orders the Kenya Premier League and Football Kenya Federation to go back and
discuss on the merits, modalities and mechanism of discussing the KPL expansion
but the change might not take effect this season.
According to a post on one of the President’s social media
page, only the teams that met the FIFA Club licensing criteria will feature in
the 2017 campaign.
-We want 18 teams KPL but only 15 meet the criteria. So only
those will be in the League for the first 2017 season.
