The 2022 Kenya Hockey Union (KHU) leagues will kick off on Saturday after two years.

The 2022 season will feature three tiers that has Premier League, Super League and National League for both men and women.

Greensharks will kick off the KHU Men’s Premier League with a tie against Parkroad Badgers on Saturday at City Park Stadium in Nairobi as gets underway this weekend.

In the last encounter in 2019 season, both sides tied at 1-1 after playing the two legs.

Sharks won the first leg 3-1 before Badgers revenged in the second leg 2-1.

Badgers' tie against Sharks will be the highlight of six matches scheduled for Saturday as the new season gets underway after coronavirus enforced break.

In the women’s Premier League, back-to-back champions Blazers tackle Sliders.

In the men’s Super League, former KHU Premier League side Sikh Union begin life in the second tier with a clash against Parklands Tigers at Strathmore University grounds in Nairobi.
