The two men’s Kenya Hockey Union Premier League matches have been rescheduled to a later date after failing to kick off at the weekend due to a heavy downpour that rendered the City Park Stadium unplayable.

Former champions Kenya Police were to play United States International University of Africa, while Wazalendo were to take on Greensharks.

And with the new development, the top four positions on the league standings remain unchanged.

Police's clash against the students will now be played on November 20, while the Wazalendo tie against Sharks will either be played on October 27 or November 3.

KHU deputy Match and Fixtures Secretary Moses Majiwa said they consulted with the teams and agreed on the new dates.

“With the heavy rain we are currently experiencing, some of the matches might be rescheduled but we hope it gets better so that we are not left in this situation, “Majiwa said.
