FKF has officially expelled Zoo FC and Mathare United. With the expulsion, the two clubs have been barred from all football related activities and will not be part of the topflight league.
They had until Friday, December, 11, 2020 at 5.00PM to submit to FKF the mandatory endorsement of the media and commercial rights between the federation and StarTimes Media Limited.
They did not comply with the demands by FKF hence the expulsion.
In a letter sent to the respective clubs, the FKF National Executive Committee stated that it has brought the matter to a conclusive end and the teams can lodge an appeal at the court of arbitration for sport in Zurich.
Below is the letter:
With the latest developments, players from the two clubs will be allowed to join other clubs and FKF will proceed to redo the fixtures for the current campaign.
FKF CEO Barry Otieno had earlier revealed that the two teams had asked for more time before putting pen to paper on the contract.
“Instead of signing the document, the clubs came back asking for more time but since NEC had already given them an ultimatum [of 48 hours which they did not meet], it is not possible to give them more time, they will now remain suspended and the league will continue without them” he said as quoted by Goal.
Mathare and Zoo are yet to give an official statement on the matter.
