AFC Leopards chairman Dan Mule has passed the club’s gratitude to the sponsors, Sportpesa for reinstating the sponsorship deal that had been frozen for about three weeks in a bid to spur the club to deal with cases of hooliganism that have marred the team’s matches in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL).
The sponsorship was reinstated after the press briefing on Tuesday 10 May called by the sponsors at the Best Western Hotel in Nairobi and Mule, in reaction, said the club was happy to have it back while promising that the club will give all in the fight to end the vice.
He assured that the club’s has ordered for the arrest of the steward who invaded the pitch in the match against Ulinzi Stars which led to the abandonment of the game.
“We are happy to have the sponsorship back and we are committed to the fight against hooliganism. We want to be part of the change, to bring peace to our stadiums and we will cooperate with all to ensure the vice is rooted out.
“We have already instructed our stewards that they have to produce certificates of good conduct within 30 days while we have also instructed our people to search for the steward who invaded the pitch in Mumias and have him arrested,” he said.
