FKF Deputy President Doris Petra presided over the FKF National Super League pre-season PET training closing ceremony on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, at Kasarani Stadium.

Also gracing the event was FKF CEO Barry Otieno, FKF NEC member Anthony Makau, FKF NEC Women Representative Margaret Omondi, FKF Nairobi West chairman Caleb Malweyi, FKF Kakamega chairman Allan Muhando, and FKF Kericho Chairman Alfred Kirui.

The PET training exercise saw 170 referees drawn from the second-tier league taken through endurance and agility drills to test their physical ability as well as medical tests to ascertain their fitness to officiate the league matches.

They were also taken through football integrity classes where they were urged to resist match manipulation attempts and report any suspected incidents to the Federation’s Integrity Department for investigation and disciplinary action.

FKF Head of Technical Department Michael Amenga also walked them through coaching accreditation regulations.


The Football Kenya Federation’s Technical Department has today, Tuesday, November 22, 2022, taken FKF National Super League (NSL) match officials through rules and regulations regarding the accreditation of coaches and their conduct in the Technical Area during matches.

Facilitated by FKF Head of Technical Michael Amenga, the session was aimed at keeping the referees abreast with the existing regulations as well as the Federation’s accreditation threshold, in a continued effort to fully professionalize the FKF leagues.

For instance, in the FKF Premier League, FKF National Super League, FKF Women Premier League and FKF Division One, both the coach and assistant coach must have attained a CAF C  license to access the technical area, and as for the clubs that qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup and the CAF Champions League, the head coach is required to have a CAF A license and the assistant coach, a CAF B license to access the technical area.

To help implement this, match commissioners were trained on what to look out for on the coaches’ accreditation cards.

“Match commissioners chair pre-match meetings and just as the player cards are checked, so will the coaches’ accreditation cards; this is to check whether the coaches are qualified to be in the technical area,” said FKF head of technical department Michael Amenga.

He also further explained the role of the referees in the implementation of this regulation, “During the games, center referees monitor all match happenings including the technical area; if one of the coaches acts poorly, he/she will issue a red card and highlight it in their match report along with the coach’s accreditation card number, to help us identify the coach and take appropriate disciplinary action against them.”

The regulations are part of FKF’s efforts to professionalize the league in line with international standards set by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the World Governing Body FIFA.
