Club Licensing process for KPL clubs Kicks Off
The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) 2019/20 club licensing process kicked off by a workshop organized by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) on Wednesday 15 May.
The workshop brought together officials from the 18 clubs who were taken through an overview of the Club Licensing process, specifically, the Legal, Infrastructure, Youth, Financial and Administrative criteria that the clubs are meant to meet in order to be handed licenses for the upcoming season.
“Club Licensing is a directive from World Governing Body FIFA, through the Confederation of African Football (CAF). It is, therefore, a mandatory process that should be adhered to for the good of the game,” Mwendwa is quoted by FKF website.
Club licensing is always designed to improve club football by targeting key areas such as best practices in club governance and youth football with the process having been first rolled in Kenya in the 2016 season.
Ahead of the 2019/2020 season, the FKF Club Licensing Committee has set the deadline for submission of the relevant documents on June 7, 2019.
