Football Kenya Federation has confirmed the eagerly awaited golden trophy for the 2020-21 season will arrive in the country in the next two weeks.

According to FKF President Nick Mwendwa, the 24-carat gold trophy is already complete, and they are now planning on shipping it to the country.

“We will have the trophy in Kenya in the next two weeks,” Mwendwa told the media on Wednesday. “I don’t have the specific date but all I know is the trophy will be here soon, just give it two weeks.”

Mwendwa has further confirmed they will have a big ceremony to welcome the trophy when it lands in Kenya.

“It will be a big occasion,” Mwendwa continued. “I can assure you we are working on having a big ceremony when it arrives in the country.”

“We have already booked KCB Bank and that is where we will keep it [the trophy], it will be round in shape, very good for everyone’s eyes, these are some of the changes we promised after taking over the league.

“We don’t have time to waste now, we were given the mandate to run football and that is what we are doing now, we don’t have time to fight, our work is for the job we are asked to do by Kenyans and it is the reason we want to have everything in place to avoid inconveniences when the season ends.”
