The Competitions Committee has now released the fixtured for the top tier that will start on November 19.

WHAT IS IN THE FIXTURE: Gor Mahia will start their campaign against Nzoia Sugar at Nyayo Stadium while AFC Leopards make a trip to Lang'ata to play Ulinzi Stars. Tusker are scheduled to play Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu Stadium.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The National Executive Council annulled the 2021/22 season that was run by the FKF Transition Committee, stating it was illegal. As a result, no team was relegated and it affected lower tiers too since promotions and relegations were also annulled.

Tusker had won the cancelled campaign with Kakamega Homeboyz finishing second.

WHAT NEXT: Fans will be happy to return to stadiums next weekend to cheer on their respective teams as supporters hope Fifa will soon lift the suspension imposed on the country after government interference.
