Gor Mahia having qualified for the first round of the Africa champions league, they face a tall order on two fronts. Firstly they have a difficulty encounter against AC Leopards the team from Congo-Brazza whose record in African competitions is impressive. But secondly they face an equally daunting task of raising the funds needed to host AC Leopards, pay referees and purchase tickets to Congo-Brazzaville.
In that regard, chairman Ambrose Rachier has called upon fans to come to the team’s rescue.
“I call upon our fans to come to our aid, the expenses for a CAF competition are high and without a sponsor it’s even harder. I thus call upon all well wishers, friends of the club and our fans to come on board and support the team financially to enable us honor our matches” he said according to futaa.com
Thank you to Peter Kenneth
Reports posted in various dailies suggested that Gor Mahia’s trip to Madagascar last week only became reality after former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth gave the club a grant of Ksh 2 million.
“He (Kenneth) bailed us with Sh2 million to pay for the tickets because we couldn’t raise money to get tickets for the match in Madagascar,” said a club official.
Gor Mahia will certainly need similar assistance when they face AC Leopards
