The Kenyan National Super League is the second tier of the Kenyan football league system, with a promotion and relegation system with the Kenyan Premier League and FKF Division One. Some of the league's member clubs are fully professional, while others are semi-professional.

The league was formed in line with the introduction of a new six-tier system by the Football Kenya Federation to take effect from the beginning of the 2014 season.

Competition

There are 24 clubs divided into two zones in the Kenyan National Super League. In each zone, during the course of a season, each club plays the others twice (a double round-robin system): once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 38 games. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw, with no points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then goal difference, and then goals scored. At the end of each season, the club with the most points is crowned champion. If points are equal, the goal difference and then goals scored determine the winner. If still equal, the ordering is determined by their head-to-head records. If there is a tie for the championship, for relegation, or for qualification to other competitions, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank. The champions of each zone are promoted to the Premier League, with its bottom two teams relegated in their place. In the same way, the bottom two teams of each zone of the National Super League are relegated to Division One, with the top two teams from both Division One zones promoted in their place.
