Today, the Football Kenya Federation Competitions Department convened a meeting with officials from clubs in the women’s FKF Division One League to prepare for the 2022/23 season kick-off.

FKF General Secretary/CEO Barry Otieno and Head of Leagues and Competitions Doreen Nabwire attended the meeting.

FKF Women Division One club officials were briefed on the preparations for the start of the league including the inspection of fields to ensure they are fit for play. A review of the 2022/23 season fixtures was also conducted.

The teams were informed that the league would be expanded to 31 teams; 15 teams in Zone A and 16 teams in zone B for the 2022/23 season to accommodate teams from the regional and county leagues. However, in the 2023/24 season, the league will have 12 teams in each zone.

CEO Barry Otieno gave an update on the current situation at the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT), which has caused the postponement of some matches until the case is heard and determined.

Additionally, the officials were urged to formalize all player transfers on the Kenya Connect Player Registration System, in accordance with FIFA’s regulations on player transfers. This should be done before the Friday, December 3, 2022 deadline.

The club officials have been strongly encouraged to maintain the integrity of the game by resisting any attempts of match manipulation and reporting any possible cases to the Federation’s Integrity Department for further investigation and disciplinary action.

The 2022/23 season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, December 10, 2022, with eight games in various venues.
