Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa has revealed the Federation’s efforts in seeking partnerships aimed at cushioning players, coaches, referees and football stakeholders at large during the Covid-19 pandemic.

FKF had from March 16, 2020, indefinitely suspended all football activities following Government’s confirmation of Kenya’s first case of Coronavirus.

The FKF President, on Wednesday, revealed that the Federation has been in talks with government as well as other partners on the best ways to offer support to football stakeholders.

“We have been in consultation with government, FIFA, and partners, and it is for this reason that we have asked for details from our KPL, NSL, Division One and Women Premier League clubs,” said the FKF President.

“We don’t have these resources yet, neither have we received commitment, but we remain optimistic that we will get a positive response,” he added.

The FKF President also noted that talks are ongoing to offer support to lower tier league clubs, which have also been affected by the pandemic.

“We are in talks with our partners to help us offer support to our lower tier league clubs. This is an ongoing discussion and we are hopeful that we will find a solution,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mwendwa urged Kenyans at large to stay safe and heed government’s directives towards containing the virus.

“I urge all our members to adhere to the Government’s directives aimed at containing the spread of the disease in the country. We are hopeful that in the coming months, we will all be free and football will return to normalcy,” he concluded.
