Only 1508 fans attended the CAF champions League match pitting Gor Mahia against Leones Vegeterianos last weekend. And according to goal.com, the match raised only Sh363, 100 in gate collection, of which Gor Mahia only banked Sh113, 448 after all the deductions that include Sh249, 632, paid to Wells Fargo.
The report states that 205 fans paid to sit at the VIP section, fetching the club Sh102, 500 while the terraces recorded the highest amount in revenues with Sh260, 600 being collected from the 1, 303 fans.
This comes despite strong efforts by a section of the fan base to bring fans back to the stadium using the hashatag #Jazastadi.
And it comes at a time when Gor Mahia future sponsorship with Sportpesa is uncertain.
Today in 2018, Gor Mahia are playing very good football, much better than during the period between 2009 and 2013 when they attracted huge crowds despite playing average football. Are the fans taking the club for granted now?
It will take a lot of effort between fans and officials to brings fans back. So far the initiatives to bring fans back have mostly been led by other fans. The club officials have been missing in action.
