In Summary
  • National federation announces formation of a parallel competition.
  • League body say a leaner affair will bode well for players, national team and the game.

The Kenyan Premier League in no uncertain terms on Wednesday maintained that the 2015 season will be a 16-team affair.

This follows a KPL Governing Council meeting held on Saturday that resolved to maintain the league format in its current status against an 18-team competition as fronted by Football Kenya Federation.

However, in a quick rejoinder FKF announced the formation of its own league that it says will be an 18-team affair.

KPL said in its statement that a lean 16- team league was ideal so as to maintain “quality”. These developments put a lot of uncertainly on when and how Kenya’s top club football league will run this season.

The dispute over the composition of the league has been running since last year when FKF announced that the top flight will be made up of 18 teams.
