Gor Mahia are seeking a second sponsor in addition to Sportpesa to help alleviate the cost of hosting teams for Africa cup matches as well as the cost of traveling.

Gor Mahia will soon announce a new sponsor to supplement what betting firm SportPesa is offering, club chairman Ambrose Rachier has said.
According to Rachier, if successful in securing a second shirt sponsor, it will be welcome reprieve to their financial hiccups during these tough times.
The club requires about Sh35 million to participate in the Caf Confederation Cup group stage matches.
This comes after the Caf banned the club from donning SportPesa-branded kits in their 4-2 triumph over Egyptian giants Zamalek in the competition’s Pool D clash at Kasarani stadium on Sunday.
The ban has been enforced to protect the economic interests of one of the tournament’s sponsors, Netherlands Antilles-based 1XBet, who happen to be SportPesa’s business rival.
