Sport brings the world together. From Africa to Europe, from Asia to South America, and from grassroots to the highest levels, the love of football crosses all borders, cultures, races and ages.
Not for nothing is it known as ʻThe Beautiful Game'.
Football forms the centre piece of our partnership strategy but it is not the only sport we support. We also work closely with clubs involved in motor sport, rugby and boxing. If local communities enjoy it, we know that our involvement can be an extremely positive influence for all concerned. While we offer valuable financial support, we also go much further: helping clubs build capacity and join corporate social responsibility initiatives to create value for players, teams, communities and businesses.
We are the official shirt sponsor of Everton, nine-times English champions and a former winner of the European Cup-winners’ Cup. Signed ahead of the 2016/17 season, this is the most lucrative sponsorship deal in the clubs history. One of football’s biggest investors in community initiatives, Everton’s culture closely parallels our own. The club supports over 40 programmes covering a range of social issues, including health, employment, youth justice and disability. Everton was the first English Premier League club to play in East Africa, meeting Kenyan club Gor Mahia – the winners of the first SportPesa Super Cup tournament – in a friendly played in Tanzania.
Hull City AFC
In July 2016, Hull City became the first English Premier League side to be sponsored by an African-founded company.

Hull City and SportPesa continue to innovate, bringing value and engagement to the club’s fans and new opportunities to the communities in which SportPesa operates.
