Football Kenya Federation (FKF) will hold a meeting with the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) to find a solution following the withdrawal of Broadcaster Supersport to air Kenyan football.
FKF President Nick Mwendwa said that the federation intends to engage both parties to ensure that Supersport returns as the top league sponsors. FKF will be meeting KPL in a Joint Executive Committee (JEC) on Monday.
“The meeting is aimed at finding a lasting solution even as we look to remedy the situation. I have made it very clear to Supersport that we want them back as soon as possible for the Kenyan football to thrive”.
Mwendwa said the federation is ready to issue any warrant to delegate authority to the League Management and express it as well to correct the issue.
“We want to make sure that contracts that are signed have proper blessings from the right authorities so that there are no more breaches in future”.
The cancellation of the partnership by Supersport came as a shock with KPL accused of breach of Licence agreement entered into by the two parties.
However Mwendwa said that the league expansion had not affected the partnership between KPL and Supersport.
