Vihiga County will have two teams in the National Super League(NSL) after Vihiga Bullets earned their promotion in the league set to kick off in August this year. Vihiga United who were relegated from the Kenya Premier League(KPL) are the other representatives from the county.
Bullets, sponsored by former County governor Moses Akaranga emerged top of Zone B with 60 points, eight clear of second-placed APS Bomet, and with only two matches left, the Vihiga County-based side is home and dry.
Muranga Seal can have the job done this weekend if they win their league fixture. They are currently top of Zone A with 61 points, six clear of second-placed Ligi Ndogo, with only two matches left on the cards.
The two could be joined in the second tier by the winner of the playoff pitting Zone A’s runners up against their Zone B counterpart who is set to be determined after the remaining two rounds of matches.
Kilifi All-Stars from Zone A has in the meantime been relegated to the fourth tier Division Two League.
They could be joined by Poror Mote and either of Silibwet, Muhoroni Youth, Raiply, Bondo United, and St. Joseph’s Youth Academy, who are in a relegation battle in Zone B.
