In Summary
  • Butali Sugar Warriors' participation in the annual event hangs in the balance as they await feedback from their sponsors.

For the second straight year, Kenya Police men’s hockey team have withdrawn from the Africa Cup of Club Championship set for December 1-10 in Ismailia, Egypt due to lack of finances.

At the same time, their local rivals and league champions Butali Sugar Warriors' participation in the annual event hangs in the balance as they await feedback from their sponsors.

Kenya Hockey Union secretary Wycliffe Ongori said only Telkom had confirmed participation in the event while Police had formally withdrawn from the annual competition.

“Strathmore University ladies team and Butali have not communicated. We just have to wait and see,” said Ongori.

This is not the first time the two teams - Police and Butali - have withdrawn their participation in the event, in 2018, both clubs gave the event that was held in Nigeria a wide berth citing financial constraints.
