Nairobi City Stars players and officials are required to undergo another round of Covid 19 testing ahead of their next league game against Gor Mahia on Sunday 16 May 2021.

The same testing will apply to all FKF Premier League clubs.

The new testing follows on the first Covid test done in October 2019 prior to league kick off, and Covid-19 vaccinations done in April 2020.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF), the managers of the top league, have written to clubs to confirm the new developments.

“We wish to inform you that FKF plans to roll out the COVID 19 testing exercise from tomorrow, Tuesday May 11 2021,” said part of a communication from the FKF CEO Barry Otieno on Monday

Speaking on the same, club CEO Patrick Korir said;

“Those are the new requirements and we will oblige. We have already presented names of our team members for the exercise to be done on Wednesday,”

“We live in extra ordinary times, in the wake of Covid-19, and any measures that puts the health of our players and officials first is more than welcome.”

The league was stopped in late March after a full suspension of Sports due to rise in Covid 19 numbers.

The suspension was however lifted on Labour Day, 1 May, opening way for league resumption in mid-May.
