Financial turmoil in the Kenyan Premier League as Sony Sugar relegated for missing three matches

The financial problems in the Kenyan Premier League and its clubs have gone overboard as the league body have confirmed relegating Sony Sugar from the elatue for failure to honour three matches.

The league’s CEO Jack Oguda has confirmed Sony Sugar have been relegated. 

Sony Sugar missed their third match this season, against Zoo Kericho, at the latter’s backyard on Wednesday. The Sugar Millers had also skipped matches against AFC Leopards and Tusker.

“As it stands, Sony Sugar are relegated,” Oguda explained to Goal.

“Any club in a league format that does not turn up for three [3] fixtures in a season and their explanation, under Article 4.1.7 is not acceptable in all the three [3] incidences to the committee, will be suspended for the rest of the season, will be relegated to a lower league for the next season and may face other disciplinary action.”

“The rules are very clear, if you miss three matches in a season, then you have to be relegated so Sony Sugar have already missed matches against AFC Leopards, Tusker and now Zoo Kericho.”

Oguda, however, explained that should Sony Sugar explain the reason which forced them to miss the match against KCB in the next 48 hours, then they might survive the axe.
