In line with FIFA’s vision of expanding club licensing globally, Football Kenya Federation has rolled out a timetable for the club licensing core process.
The main objective of the process is to strengthen the professionalization of football clubs as envisaged by the world governing body and Confederation of African Football (CAF).
According to CAF, all clubs participating in next year’s continental tournaments have until October 31, 2016, to comply, failure to which they risk forfeiting their slot in the tournament.
In Kenya, clubs that stand a chance to qualify for the 2017 CAF tournaments include Tusker, Ulinzi Stars, Kariobangi Sharks, KCB and Posta Rangers, all of whom may win the GOTV Shield tournament, which guarantees clubs automatic qualifications in the CAF Confederation Cup.
Also, any club that until now has a mathematical chance of lifting the Kenyan Premier League, needs to comply as they stand a chance of representing Kenya in the CAF Champions League come next year.
In this perspective, FKF has already held two workshops on Club licensing, with the first one being attended by all KPL and NSL clubs, while the second was attended by All clubs that had qualified for the GOTV tournament Round of 16 and the top six clubs in the KPL.
The first workshop was held in March 2016, while the second was held earlier this month.
