Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards have entered a new sponsorship deal with gaming company Bet High Kenya Limited under their leading brand, BetSafe.

Bet High, who are yet to start their operations in the country, will bankroll Kenya’s biggest community clubs for the next three seasons.

Record KPL champions Gor will get Sh55 million per season while Leopards will receive Sh40 million.

Bet High Kenya Limited will be launching its operations in the Kenyan market under the brand name Betsafe in the near future and has made it a priority to support football from grassroots level to the top-flight league.

“We will be launching in the Kenyan market very soon and our top priority is to support Kenyan football. Being a responsible gaming provider since the very beginning we aim to bring more engagement and excitement together with Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards in the near future,” said Tom Bwana, Public Relations and Partner Manager at Bet High.

The sponsorship will come as a big relief for both clubs who endured tough financial times during the 2019/20 season with players going without salary for several months.

  1. Gor Mahia still needs a lasting and sustainable solution to the perennial financial problem. I however appreciate the sponsorship deal, though I understand the betting company is yet to start operations in
    Kenya. Unconconfirmed sources say it’s about 55 M per year. Thats a good relief but still not adequate to make GM competetive. I still feel that the GM fan base is a gold mine that the Club Management is not making good use of.

  2. Just like the former sponsor, it’s business as usual. Time to eat. AFC have a Cristal road map ahead, For Rachier again unfortunately it’s time to eat. The only consolation is that the players will eat the crumbles that fall off the table and after 2 seasons the cycle continues. Hooligans from Nairobi can breathe.i don’t know where brains like Jasego went.

    1. A good membership drive with incentives will help further, Rachier is a good leader and has stood with the team thru thick and thin but we need more: Our own stadium, team bus and steady income apart from sponsors then we’ll challenge Africa. LIPENI MADENI HATUTAKI GO-SLOW

  3. This is such a relief.
    This time Rachier can’t let the opportunity to make GMFC a continental force and the club financially stable pass as he did with Tuzo and Sportpesa.
    The real money enough to sustain and grow the club is in CAF CL and CAF CC.
    Great football clubs are known primarily for the trophies in their cabinets, and am not thinking of KPL.
    Kindly let’s compensate performing players and TB for their sweat.
    To the players and TB fight for your salaries/rights so you can save for the future. With sponsorship there is no excuse for delayed or non payment. If you allow it don’t blame anyone.

  4. Rachier is still in charge and cartels like Ngala, Aduda and Sally Bolo are still in charge. Nothing will change. Aduda and Sally Bolo will now relinquish their quest for positions in FKF and come back to the club now that there is some money. I don’t expect much to change. The only issue I hope for is that the players are given their backpay

    1. Gor mahia needs a visionary leader who is in touch with reality, with capacity to engage with the fanbase backed by a pragmatic action plan underpinning short, medium and long term plans

  5. I think chairman has done his bit.Clearly he can do much more by leaving the club to someone else with fresh ideas and also to ensure all the others go home as well.I still think Bwana can lead this club
