2016/2017 Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) season will serve off in September and not January as has been the case in the previous years.
The new development is meant to align the KVF Calendar which run from January/December with that of International Volleyball Federation (FIVB)-September/May.
Next season (2016) will be the shortest and is expected to run from January to May to pave way for the new calendar in September according to sources privy to the discussion at KVF secretariat. 2015 season will end in December.
The recommendation is expected to be passed during the executive meeting to be held later this year. This is in efforts to end the ever thorny issue of Kenyan players getting into problem with FIVB/CAVB in processing the transfer Certificates whenever they want to turn up for professional stints abroad.
Early this year, CAVB wrote to KVF warning of dire consequences (including a fine and a ban) when they learnt that Mercy Moim who played for Finish side Liga Ploski last season (until May) was entered by Kenya Prisons to play the Africa Club Championship. (Un) Fortunately, Prisons failed to honor the club games due to lack of funds.
