Gor Mahia declared Kenyan Premier League Champions

Gor Mahia have been declared League Champions of the 2019/20 season.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Nick Mwendwa confirmed that the Green Army are the 2019/20 Kenyan Premier League champions.

The Kenya Premier League was suspended back in March in line with the government’s directives to fight the spread of Covid-19. In their guidelines, the government banned mass gatherings, movement from various counties as well as a night curfew.

On his twitter handle, Mwendwa tweeted “Congratulations Gor Mahia! You are champions once again and you will represent Kenya on the champions’ league Next season. Let’s do this !”

The Kenya Premier League was scheduled to end on May 8 and with the government extending the curfew and the ban on mass gatherings, a resumption of the league appeared not likely.

According to FKF, 68% of the games had been played and with Gor Mahia having an unassailable lead, they deserved to be crowned champions.

Gor Mahia sat at the summit of the league with 54 points ahead of second placed Kakamega Homeboyz with 47 points

While is still unclear how relegation from the two top leagues will be effected, Mwendwa also confirmed National Super League leaders Nairobi City Stars have also been promoted to the top-tier.
