Gor Mahia FC will get Ksh 198 Million while AFC Leopards will get Ksh 159 Million. Football Kenya Federation will get Ksh 69 Million.

SportPesa withdrew all sponsorship agreements with local sports entities at the beginning of this year valued at about half a billion shillings annually after a tax rate on gambling revenue of 35 per cent was introduced by the government last year.

 

Karauri however says they will not be renewing sponsorships for Kenya Rugby Union, Kenya Harlequins and boxing.
