The Tusker Premier League (TPL) matches scheduled for the
weekend of Saturday 20 – Sunday 21 October will go on at various venues across
the country as scheduled in the league fixtures.
Games to proceed
The schedule for the weekend was clouded in uncertainty after
the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) moved the President’s Cup fixtures to that
weekend causing a clash but in an interview with futaa.com the TPL Chief
Executive Officer (CEO) Jack Oguda confirmed the matches will be on.
Oguda said the decision had been reached after consultations
with the various stakeholders and it was resolved that the President’s Cup
matches, which are at the semi final stage be scheduled for a later date.
-We spoke with the chairmen of clubs and the other
stakeholders and resolved to let the league matches go on as scheduled in the
fixtures then we will find a slot or two later on and reserve them for the cup
games, he told futaa.com.
In the cup semis, Sofapaka is scheduled to meet Tusker while
defending champions Gor Mahia set to face off with AFC Leopards.
