Football in Kenya was halted on March 16 owing to Covid-19 and since then, no major activities surrounding the game have taken place.
However, it seems plans are underway for the games to resume as clubs have been given the greenlight to start signing as soon as next week.
“Football Kenya Federation wishes to notify all clubs scheduled to participate, and other stakeholders, that the primary transfer window for the 2020/21 season shall officially open on Monday, August 10, and Monday, August 17 for the [Kenyan] Premier League and the [National] Super League respectively,” the statement obtained by SPORTS AFRICA read.
Teams will have 12 weeks, equivalent to three months to have players they want in their teams. It will be a perfect opportunity as well for the players to find suitable teams.
“The window shall open for 12 weeks and close on Monday, November 2 for the [Kenyan] Premier League and Monday, November 9 the [National] Super League at 1700Hrs.
“The window for international transfers closes on Monday, November 2 at 2359Hrs.
