The Football Kenya Federation’s Competitions Department convened a meeting today with officials from clubs in the men’s FKF Division One League to prepare for the 2022/23 season kick-off.
The meeting was attended by FKF General Secretary/CEO Barry Otieno, Head of Leagues and Competitions Doreen Nabwire, and Head of Integrity, Projects and National Teams, Mike Kamure.
The club officials were briefed on the preparations for the start of the league this weekend, with a review of the fixtures also conducted.
They were also notified that the FKF Men Division One League will have a total of 16 teams in each of the two zones in the 2023/24 season.
CEO Barry Otieno provided an update on the current situation at the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT), which has caused the postponement of some matches until the case has been heard and determined.
Additionally, the officials were urged to formalize all player transfers on the Kenya Connect Player Registration System, in accordance with FIFA’s regulations on player transfers.
The club officials have been strongly encouraged to maintain the integrity of the game by resisting any attempts of match manipulation and reporting any possible cases to the Federation’s Integrity Department for further investigation and disciplinary action.
The 2022/23 season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, December 10, 2022, with eight games in various venues.
