Who would have guessed it. Within a week of Ingwe’s (AFC Leopards) epic return to top flight football the old spectre of match abndonments would not be far behind.
Their first match back in the KPL against the newly renamed Nairobi City Stars was abandoned in the 60th minute when the swollen crowd of Football fans brought down a perimeter fence surrounding the pitch with AFC Leopards trailing 1-0 to their hosts. The finger pointing is already in full force with Stadium officials at the World Hope centre in Kawangware blaming an influx of ‘illegal fans’ for the abandonment.
They say that they sold 2000 official tickets but there may have been more than 5000 people watching the game. Which leaves this blogger wondering, if there were official tickets, where did the other 3000 odd prove that they had a rights to access the ground?
