Overview

The second most successful club in Kenya with 13 national league titles, 9 domestic cup titles and 5 CECAFA titles, AFC Leopards was founded in 1964, playing under the name of Abaluhya F.C following the amalgamation of several small clubs that represented the various sub tribes of the Luhya community.

A presidential decree banning the use of tribal names in 1979 saw the team change its name to AFC Leopards and the side is fondly referred to as “Ingwe” which refers to a Leopard in the Luhya language.

The team would endure the misery of relegation from the top flight in 2006, 40 years after they claimed their maiden league title. They returned to the top flight in 2009 and are yet to claim success despite winning two domestic cup titles in 2009 and 2013.

Like their bitter rivals Gor Mahia, Ingwe has over the years been home to many of Kenya’s soccer greats, many of whom have also featured for the Harambee Stars.
