The Kenyan Premier League Awards have been moved to January 2018 as the Harambee Stars are busy with the 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge.
Kenya will host the regional showpiece which means an announcement was made that the local awards event will be hosted next year.
Media reports in the country suggest that the red carpet ceremony was planned for December 13.
The regional tournament was initially scheduled to end before the gathering of top league performers.
However, due to unavoidable circumstances, according to the organizers, the tournament will now start December 3 to 17.
“The new date for the awards will be communicated in due course,” a statement from KPL said.
The league’s Chief Executive Officer, Jack Oguda, had earlier confirmed to Soka25east that betting giants SportPesa will sponsor this year’s event.
For over a decade, pay television company SuperSport footed the bill until their broadcast deal with the KPL was terminated this year.
