Leading gaming company Mozzartbet Kenya have officially been unveiled as the new sponsors of Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) side Kakamega Homeboyz in an event held in Kakamega on Thursday 24th December.
The sponsorship, a first for the club, is for the 2020/21 season and is worth Kshs 20 million. The event was attended by Kakamega County Deputy Governor, Professor Philip Kutima, and Club CEO, Bernard Shitiabayi among other dignitaries.
Mr. Shitiabayi lauded Mozzart for partnering with the club saying the club was now ready to conquer the league and hopefully play in Continental matches in the near future.
“This is a historic moment for the club and we are very happy and grateful to partner with Mozzartbet for the 2020/21 season. Our performance last season and the previous years has proved that we are a big club and the giants of Western Kenya,” said Mr. Shitibayi. “We have shown that we can challenge for the title but time and again we have faltered due to some internal challenges, nothing to do with the quality of our team,” he added.
Mozzart Kenya Country Manager Sasa Krneta said the company was happy to partner with the Western Kenyan club and was eager to continue supporting other projects within the country.
“I am very happy to have you all here gathered to witness this historic moment as we unveil our partnership with Kakamega Homeboyz. As Mozzart, we are very glad to partner with the club and we are looking forward to achieving great things together. This is a good club with potential to dominate the top league and it is our hope that this partnership will propel the team to greater heights,” he said.
“Mozzart has the interests of Kenyan communities at heart and therefore it was highly important for us to find a club that represents our values as an organization and I know we have the right partners in the Homeboyz. To the people of Kakamega and Western Kenya this is the time to rally behind the team and support them wholeheartedly as the success of Kakamega Homeboyz is your success. This is your team and we are here to support you in achieving your goals.” Mr. Krneta concluded.
