SuperSport, who have been the Kenyan top flight league media partners for the last decade, only aired the opening round of the 2017 season before switching off their cameras.

They also withdrew their sponsorship for the KPL Super Cup which Gor Mahia beat league champions Tusker 1-0 in Nakuru early last month.

The Exit of  SuperSport from the Kenyan Market as placed hundreds of jobs at stake bearing in mind that many people had been employed to run its activities in Kenya.

However SuperSport were not airing the KPL matches saying that they were not given the full fixtures for the games in order to plan in time.

SuperSport are also reported to be planning to exit the Kenyan market thus the reason why they ended their relationship with KPL.

SuperSports accused KPL of breach of contract after the ruling which paved way for eighteen team league.

Recently the FKF president Nick Mwendwa said that, the failure of SuperSport to air Kenyan matches was  away of denying local talents exposure.
