Football Kenya Federation Chairman Nick Mwendwa has confirmed that Kenya’s Top flight League will soon return to our screens.
Mwendwa has revealed that the federation has secured a 7 year deal worth 1.1 Million dollars. With the current exchange rates, this translates to approximately 1 billion Kenyan shillings.
“Startimes….FKFPL back on TV !!! 7 year deal, 1.1M dollars a year including National teams men and women, NSL 30 matches. What a day?” posted Mwendwa on his official twitter account.
He also added that one match per weekend will be on a free to air channel of Startimes’ choice.
The football supremo also made it clear that every club will keep its rights for shirt sponsorship and other club based right.
The latest deal comes as a reprieve to many football fans in the country who have struggled to stay up to date with the happenings on the field of play.
There has been no official broadcaster of the topflight league since South Africa’s Supersport left the scene in 2017.
The latest announcement comes just months after Mwendwa confirmed that the League got a new sponsor in the form of betting firm Betking.
