KWPL Transfer Window Dates Revealed

Clubs in the Kenyan Women’s Premier League and Division One have been handed the green light to start making transfers ahead of the new season.

Starting from Monday KWPL clubs can add new faces to their squads. The transfer window will run until November 16.

The Division One League, on the other hand, will open on September 14 and close on November 23.

According to the federation, transfers will be happen through the competition’s online portals.

The federation is expected to reveal the competitions schedule, including start dates once the government lifts the ban on sporting activities.

Football activities have been on a break since they were suspended in March. However, the Ministry of Sports unveiled the return to action protocols.

The protocols are now being discussed by various stakeholders before submitting their recommendations for the ministry to give a final word.

Mwendwa stated the three top-tier men’s leagues could return by October as well as the Kenyan Women’s Premier League.

“The coronavirus has in no doubt affected every aspect of football,” Mwendwa said. “Remember the players have been at home and have not been paid because companies have not been making money.

“We will give them the programme on Monday and one of the suggestions is that we are planning to start teams’ training on September 15.

“One month after joint training by teams, we will then be ready to see the KWPL start.

“I think the best dates will be between October 20 and 25 but of course, we will wait to see what the ministry tells us.”
