Mwatate promoted to National Super League
Mwatate United has been promoted to the National Super League (NSL) after Football Kenya Federation announced an end to all leagues in the country.
Last year, they narrowly missed out after losing the promotion playoff on post-match penatlies to Shabana FC at the Kasarani Stadium.
Speaking after receiving the promotion news, Mwatate United Chairman James Mbaraka expressed their joy terming it a dream come true.
“It has always been our dream to play in this league and after hardwork, we thank God for the chance,” Mbaraka said.
At the same time, he has fired a tough warning to their next season opponents as they will be chasing another target of being the first team from Taita Taveta county to play in the Kenyan Premier League.
“We will not be joy riders as we are targeting only one season in NSL”, he added.
Their inclusion will now increase Coast region representatives to three after Mombasa based Coast Stima and Modern Coast Rangers who have been in the league for the last two seasons.
They will be joined by Silibwet from zone B as MCF and Soy United battle out for the third spot after finishing in the second position in both zones.
Makueni Nunguni, Strathmore University and Green Berets are the three teams to be relegated to division one leagues from National Super League
