FC Talanta will play in the Football Kenya Federation Premier League next season.

Talanta were crowned National Super League champions with two matches to spare after edging out relegation bound Soy United 2-1 in Nairobi.

Sebi Mohammed’s double sealed Talanta’s rise to the top flight league as coach Ken Kenyatta is set to return in the Premier League next season.

Fortune Sacco, who are second on log of the second-tier league, can only reach 65 points and finish second if they win their remaining matches.

The race for the third place playoff spot is however still on with Kisumu All Stars, Kibera Black Stars, Kenya Police and Vihiga Bullets still in the mix.
