The winner of Sunday’s Super Cup clash between KPL Champions Gor Mahia and FKF Shield Cup Winners Bandari FC will have to be contented with the trophy alone. This is according to KPL CEO Jack Oguda who has confirmed that there will no prize money for the second consecutive season.
According to Oguda, just like last season, the Super Cup still has no sponsor and as such no money will be awarded to either teams due to lack of funds.
“We don’t have a sponsor for the Super Cup and so the winner will have to be content with the trophy,” Said Oguda as quoted by Goal.
“We don’t have a budget for the game and our coffers are nil, we don’t have money. We will only be able to give out the trophy like it was the case last season when Kariobangi Sharks beat Gor Mahia to win the season opener.”
Oguda however had some positive news to lovers of the Kenya Premier League with the football administrator assuring fans that they are in the process of getting a new sponsor for the league. This follows the decision by betting giants Sportpesa to cut their sponsorship of Top flight football in the Country. He assured fans that the League will kick off as earlier scheduled.
“We will make sure the league starts on August 30. We are working very hard to secure another sponsor after SportPesa pulled out”
“We are doing our best and I hope in the next two weeks, we will have some positive news. But also the league will start because clubs have their sponsors, they will rely on what they get from their sponsors to start the league.”
