Shabana Football Club, more commonly known as simply Shabana or sometimes Shabana Kisii, is a Kenyan association football club based in Kisii. The club was formed in 1980 by Kisii based businessman Dogo Khan. They won the division title in 2014.They were promoted back to the Kenya Premier League after winning the Zone B of the FKF Division One.[1] It had nearly collapsed in 2006 when a dispute over its relegation from the Kenyan Premier League.[2] They were set to play in Nationwide League, the second level tier in Kenya, but refused to participate insisting they belong to the Premier League (who did not readmit them). As a result, the club did not participate any league in 2007. However the team regrouped and was renamed Gusii United Football Club, eventually returning to league football. Their home stadium is Gusii Stadium.
