According to a story in the local dailies, groups of Kogalo fans have called on The Kenya Premier league to end price gouging by teams hosting Kogalo.
Gor Mahia, who have the largest fan base in Kenya, are credited as having brought back fans to stadia during league matches. Opposing teams have been taking advantage of K’Ogalo’s large following to make a kill from gate collections. Most of the KPL clubs now want to host their home matches in Nairobi, while they hike their ticket prices up to Sh300 from the normal Sh100. Some teams have even used security as excuse to have their home matches moved to bigger stadia where they would eventually accommodate more fans, translating to more money. Home teams take all the gate collections. Ataro said KPL should intervene to save the poor Gor fans who sacrifice a lot for the sake of their team.
