OFFICIAL: Gor Mahia declared KPL champions

Gor Mahia have been crowned the Kenyan Premier League champions after the federation stated that there is no hope of continuing the league soon. 

The Kenyan League alongside other leagues were suspended indefinitely due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Before the suspension, the Green Army were on top of the table with 54 points after 23 games, seven points ahead of the second-placed Kakamega Homeboyz. 

FKF President Nick Mwenda has declared K'Ogalo as the KPL champions through his official Twitter account. This comes after CAF wrote to FKF to clarify the way forward regarding the KPL's conclusion. 

"Ooh and Congratulations Gor Mahia! You are champions once again and you will represent Kenya on the champions league next season. Let's do this!" he posted on Twitter. 

Promotion

Nairobi City Stars, who were on top of the NSL before the suspension of football have earned a promotion to the top flight league alongside second-placed Bidco United. 

"Nairobi City Stars and the second-placed team [Bidco United], will also be promoted. We began the season with rules, and it is the same rules we are using as FKF. It is clear 68% of matches have been played."

Playoffs

Ahead of the new season, whose start date is yet to be known, the third-placed team in NSL will play two-legged play-offs to determine which team plays in the KPL. 

As usual, the third-placed team in the second tier will play two-legged play-offs to determine who plays in the KPL next season. Kisumu All Stars, who are 16th on the log will face third-placed Vihiga(NSL) with the winner securing a spot in the KPL.
