The second day of the FKF Premier League pre-season PET training saw  80 referees and assistant referees taken through football integrity, on Wednesday, November 16, 2022, by Head of FKF Integrity Mike Kamure.

Match-fixing is when a game is manipulated to produce a desired outcome, and the FKF Premier League referees and assistant referees were shown how to recognize instances of match-fixing, resist and report suspicious activities.

FIFA in conjunction with FKF has put up identification and reporting mechanisms for match-fixing such as the FIFA portal, the FKF Integrity Portal, and the FKF Integrity Hotline number +254 790115228, in the game, which they were guided through.
