Kenya Premier League (KPL) have postponed the eagerly awaited league match between Gor Mahia and Tusker FC that was scheduled for May 30 (Thursday) at Nyayo Stadium.
A statement from KPL confirmed that the match has been pushed to a date to be communicated later to allow Harambee Stars prepare adequately for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Nigeria on June 5.
“Tusker Premier League match number 64 Tusker vs GorMahia at the Nyayo Stadium, originally scheduled for May 30, has been postponed to a date to be communicated,” read the statement.
The statement added, “This is due to the national team Harambee Stars preparations for international assignments.”
The match was initially set to be played earlier in the season but was postponed due to both teams’ involvement in Caf competitions.
Both Gor Mahia and Tusker FC have played less matches in the league due to their involvement in the Confederations Cup and Champions League respectively and they will be having less time to rest in the June mid-season if they are to catch up with the rest of the teams.
