Kenyan RL gains Government recognition

Recommended Posts

Rugby League in Kenya has received a significant boost this month following the successful appeal by the Kenya Rugby League Federation at the Judiciary Office of Sports Disputes Tribunals to gain official Government recognition.

The appeal, which was four years in the making, finally opens up the opportunity for the code of Rugby League to make progress after being limited in its ability to seek government funding, sponsorship and even insurance.

Fantastic news............it seems that article has disappeared but will hopefully be back

The link worked earlier; I hope it wasn't pulled for being inaccurate.

Is this really a positive? I've never read about RL in Kenya except playing against Italian rebels. Are we sure this is not World Rugby League at work?

Government recognition is always the first major hurdle that Rugby League faces in any new country.  In many places development is practically impossible without it.
