Gor Mahia will have to find a way out to make their Kenyan Premier League (KPL) game against Mathare United happen after their request to have it brought forward to Sunday 1 April was rejected by the league secretariat.
According to the KPL fixtures for the eighth round of matches released by the league, Gor Mahia’s game stands as it had been planned, with a notable change being in its timing.
The game was originally planned for 1900hrs on Wednesday 4 April at the Nyayo National Stadium and was to be televised by Supersport. However, in the fixtures, the game is set for the Nairobi City Stadium on the same date at 1500hrs.
The game has also been struck off the roll of live matches for the eighth round as the broadcaster seems to be upholding the blackout it started during the Gor Mahia versus Rangers FC game on Wednesday 21 March.
Gor will now have to negotiate with the City Stadium management over the KPL-assigned date, an issue which one official of the club had said was a tall order considering the stadium is mostly busy on weekdays.
