Rugby to wait as low risk sports get greenlight to resume

Kenya Rugby fans will continue to wait for rugby action resumption after the Ministry of Sports failed to give green light for the sport which falls under high risk contact sport.

Low risk contact sports have been given the greenlight to have their top tiers resume- meaning football’s top tier will kick off on Saturday as planned.

Rugby which has been suspended since March will continue to wait for further directions from the ministry.  National teams have however been given greenlight to kick off their preparations.

“All contact sports (low-risk) may resume their premier (Tier 1) League and team Kenya activities. All other activities related to lower level leagues remain supended,” reads part of the statement released by Amb Amina Mohammed on Friday.

“All contact sports (High-Risk) remain suspended. All National Teams may resume training in preparation for International events,” the statement further adds.

The Kenya Rugby Union is hoping to have the top tier-Kenya Cup kick off on 16th January while the second tier- KRU Championship and third tier was to commence early to allow teams have playoffs to determine who will be promoted.

Kenya Rugby gives teams at least four to six weeks to have their preseason before a new season kicks off.
