Leopards won’t appeal IDAC ruling

AFC Leopards

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards have confirmed they will not be lodging any further appeals over the ruling by the Independent Disciplinary and Complaints Committee (IDCC) to dock the club three points, which was upheld by the Independent Disciplinary and Appeals Committee (IDAC) upon appeal.

The club was docked points by the IDCC following crowd trouble instigated by its fans in the game against Ulinzi Stars that led to the abandonment of the game in April at the Mumias Sports Complex.

The club has the option of appealing at the Sports Disputes Tribunal (SDT) but chairman Dan Mule has stated that after the IDAC upheld the IDCC ruling, they will not be heading that way

“I think we tried to state our case and we will not be appealing further; we will not take it to the tribunal but rather concentrate on strengthening the team.

“We can recover from the setback by concentrating well and focusing on winning as many matches as possible,” he said.

After 18 matches in the season, AFC Leopards is 12th with 21 points. The team’s most recent game ended in a 1 – 1 draw with Mathare United.
