There is a need to deliver the best as the country needs a new international facility. So far,  Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani is the only stadium in the country that meets international standards.

Nyayo has been closed for renovation for the past three years inconveniencing KPL matches. The match organizers have been experiencing challenges finding alternative stadiums for the games opting for Narok Stadium in Narok County and Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos which have limited space.
