Football Federation in partnership with betting company Betika has unveiled KShs. 5.3 million package for Kenyan Premier League and National Super League players.
This will see 30 players from each of the 17 KPL and 19 NSL clubs take home Kshs. 5000 token from the betting company. The event was held at the FKF House, Goal Project, and at hand to receive the token was Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna and his Nairobi City Stars counterpart Anthony Kimani, on behalf of the 36 clubs.
"Thank you Betika and FKF for this kind gesture towards us," said Muguna.
On receiving the toke, Kimani said, "We feel appreciated. Never before has football been suspended to this extent and this token, though not enough, will go a long way in cushioning us against the economic effects of the global pandemic."
While presenting the cheque to FKF President Nick Mwendwa and the two captains, Betika commercial Head John Mbatia reiterated the leading online gaming firm’s commitment to supporting Kenyan football.
"Football has been largely affected by this pandemic and it is for this reason that we opted to partner FKF in supporting our players," he said.
