Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has expressed his delight in corporate trust FKF has gained, following the signing of back to back partnerships for the FKF County Leagues and the National Super League.
The FKF Boss presided over the launch of a KES 127 Million 3-year partnership for the FKF County Leagues, on Thursday, where he emphasized the Federation’s commitment to transparency and accountability.
He also called on more corporates from far and wide to explore avenues of partnership with the Federation’s assets.
“This partnership marks a major milestone in grassroots football development, which forms part of our long term football agenda and I must thank Odibets for coming in at this crucial time in football where the sport is in facing financial constraints,” said the FKF President on the sidelines of the launch held at a Nairobi Hotel.
“We are committed to transparency and accountability and this is demonstrated by the trust such corporates as Odibets have shown in us, by extending financial support to the grassroots through the Federation. FKF remains open to scrutiny and we invite more corporates from far and wide to come on board and partner with us in our football development agenda,” he said.
Earlier last month, FKF unveiled Betika as its National Super League and Community Football Partner in a KES 90 Million 3-year deal.
These partnerships have not only gone a long way in easing the clubs’ financial obligations but has also given players more reason to take part in the game, which has in the past four years grown into a viable economy.
