Prior to 13th of May 2018, it had been two decades before the Moi International Stadium in Kasarani was filled to capacity for a football match. The 60,000-seater sports complex hosted the historic Hull City vs Gor Mahia match which marked the first time the UK Championship team visited East Africa.
The match was a huge success as the Gor Mahia players engaged their counterparts from Hull City in a thrilling encounter where Hull City won 4-3 on penalties after a spirited fight by the local boys within the 90-minute normal time.
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.
