Kenya's women's national football team successful in CAS appeal
On 20 January 2022, Mr Barry Otieno, the former CEO of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF), withdrew Kenya's team from the first qualifying round of the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations (the “FKF Decision”).
On 18 February 2022, 22 members of the team (the “Players”) appealed against the FKF Decision before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”).
On 10 June 2022, the CAS upheld the Players’ appeal and set aside the FKF Decision, holding that it had been issued ultra vires, i.e. by a person who was no longer entitled to act on behalf of the FKF.
