CAF offer funds to Kenya for Africa Cup of Nations preparations

by John Kwoba NAIROBI NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Confederation of African Football (CAF) has advanced 26 million shillings (260,000 U.S. dollars) to Kenya for preparation of the national team Harambee Stars ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) which will be held in Egypt from June 21 to July 19.

All the 24 teams that will make the AFCON 2019 have also been given the same grant.

"The aim of the advance payment is to help federations with smaller budgets (like Mauritania) to meet the expenses of their preliminary preparations.

"The amounts will however be deducted from the premiums to be received by each country at the end of the tournament," CAF said in a statement to Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

Already Kenya have 20,000 U.S. dollars from shirt sponsors, an online betting firm, with the government releasing another 2.44 million dollars required by Stars coach Sebastien Migne for the team’s trip to France for a three-week training camp.

FKF president Nick Mwendwa said they will provide all logistic to make it smooth for the team to progress through the tournament and have a shot at lifting the AFCON title.

Harambee Stars were scheduled to travel to France on May 23, for a three-week training camp, before heading to Egypt on June 15, for a one-week acclimatization camp, ahead of the final tournament.
