FKF hoping to secure Cup sponsor



Football Kenya Federation has promised to seek a title sponsor for the next edition of the annual domestic cup competition.

In a statement, the federation chair Sam Nyamweya also challenged more clubs to register for the competition in the coming season, terming this as an opportunity to challenge the big teams.

While congratulating the 2012 winners Gor Mahia, the chairman noted that the tournament gives the so called small teams a chance to take down Kenya’s big guns – which could also be their big break to representing the nation on the continental stage.

“This year a total of 31 teams took part in the annual domestic cup, that saw some league sides stunned by little known teams,” he said. “I urge more teams to register next year since we are hoping to have a title sponsor.”

The 2012 FKF Cup was won by Gor Mahia in a thrilling final against former league champions Sofapaka, with Gor winning 3-0 in post-match penalties on Tuesday evening at the Nyayo National Stadium.

K’Ogalo will now represent the nation in the 2013 edition of the CAF Confederations Cup tournament, where they will be expected to improve on their 2012 group stage record.

The side was eliminated by their opponents Ferroviaro de Maputo, on Saturday 10 March, at Nyayo National Stadium – with the Mozambique based-side advancing to the next round on 4-0 aggregate.

The federation has also promised to give them full backing ahead of what is usually an expensive affair at the continental stage.
