Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Transition Committee has revealed the venue and date for the second-tier playoffs.

Dimba Patriots, who topped the Division One Zone 'A' standings, will lock horns with winners of Zone 'B' Mayenje Santos to determine the overall Division One champion.

TC brought the development to light in a letter signed by the head of the secretariat, Lindah Oguttu.

"We wish to inform you that the FKF Division One play-off matches to determine the overall league winner and the 3rd placed team to be promoted to the FKF National Super League 2022/23 will take place in Kericho on Friday, 5th August 2022 as follows: 3rd Place Play-off Match: Kangemi Allstars FC vs Kona Rangers FC, 11 am;  Championship Play-off Match: Dimba Patriots vs Mayenje Santos FC, 2 pm," 

Dimba Patriots, Mayenje Santos and the winner between Kangemi Allstars and Kona Rangers will take the places of Zoo, Gusii, and Dandora Love who were all relegated from the NSL.

Zoo were relegated by the world football governing body, Fifa over match-fixing allegations.

Dandora Love pulled out of the National Super League (NSL) barely a week after Zoo Kericho also withdrew from the second-tier competition.

The decision came 48 hours after the team snubbed their league encounter against Gusii FC at Awendo Green Stadium.

Club owner Raphael Munjal said they reached the decision after establishing that some of their players had colluded with opponents to fix matches.

Munjal also lashed out at the Football Kenya Federation Transition Committee for 'failing in their arbitration role'.
