KPL has announced that the much awaited KPL Top 8 first leg match between rivals AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia has been postponed to a later date yet to be fixed.
CEO Jack Oguda while confirming the latest development said they are in the process of identifying the next date but the match has been strongly affected by the unavailability of a suitable venue to host the heavy fixture that has always attracted huge fans from both divides.
“Due to unavoidable circumstances we have had to postpone the match to a later date. We will communicate accordingly.” He said.
Last week the Sports Stadia management board announced an indefinite ban on hosting Gor Mahia at all their venues including the Nyayo stadia and Kasarani until further notice.KPL had initially scheduled the match for Kasarani on 1st of April.
However, after the chaos that dominated the last encounter between the two teams on March 18th , Football Kenya Federation (FKF) announced that the match will be moved to Mombasa at the Mbaraki Stadium though sources also indicated Mbaraki still remain shy of hosting the heavy match.
“ We are engaging several stakeholders to see the possible venue including talking to the stadia management board. We are hopeful of getting a solution soon.” Added Oguda.
