Speaking in Nairobi on Wednesday on behalf of the 18 top tier clubs, Gor Mahia Chief Executive Officer Raymond Oruo said, “We have unanimously resolved as Kenyan Premier League clubs that the teams will not take part in any competition that is not recognized by the world governing body, FIFA because it is a waste of investment and time and very little returns coming through.”

FKF Premier League clubs have declared they will not play in a league that is not sanctioned by the game’s global sanctioning body, FIFA.

Speaking in Nairobi on Wednesday on behalf of the 18 top tier clubs, Gor Mahia Chief Executive Officer Raymond Oruo said, “We have unanimously resolved as Kenyan Premier League clubs that the teams will not take part in any competition that is not recognized by the world governing body, FIFA because it is a waste of investment and time and very little returns coming through.”

“What we are saying is that the 18 clubs of the Premier League have decided that we will only play the 2022-2023 season in a properly sanctioned FIFA league because that is the only way our teams and players are going to benefit,” he added.
