Tusker com­ply with the on­go­ing FKF club li­cens­ing process

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports Local -

Sporptesa Premier League ti­tle favourites Tusker are the first Kenyan club to com­ply with the on­go­ing club li­cens­ing process.

The brew­ers were feted by Foot­ball Kenya Fed­er­a­tion (FKF) Club Li­cens­ing Com­mit­tee chair­per­son pro­fes­sor Ed­win Wa­mukoya at the fed­er­a­tion’s of­fices in Nairobi.

“Be­fore li­cens­ing Tusker, we looked at var­i­ous as­pects of club li­cens­ing as fronted by Fifa and as a com­mit­tee came to the con­clu­sion that the club had met the thresh­old,” said Wa­mukoya.

“I want to con­grat­u­late Tusker for achiev­ing this mile­stone and hope that other clubs will fol­low suit.”

FKF CEO Robert Muthomi re­it­er­ated the fed­er­a­tion’s com­mit­ment in en­sur­ing that clubs com­ply with the li­cens­ing process say­ing: “FKF re­mains com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing that all clubs in the Premier League and the Na­tional Su­per League com­ply with the club li­cens­ing re­quire­ments as stip­u­lated by Fifa and Caf.”

“We are happy that Tusker, who stand a good chance in rep­re­sent­ing the coun­try in Caf or­gan­ised com­pe­ti­tions next year have com­plied and it is our prayer that the rest of the clubs that are likely to do the same will also take the nec­es­sary steps to com­ply,” added Muthomi.

The main ob­jec­tive of the process is to strengthen and pro­fes­sion­al­ize the way foot­ball clubs are run as en­vis­aged by the world govern­ing body and 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 tour­na­ments.
