Kenya 7's rugby team lands new shirt sponsors

SportPesa are the new official Kenya Rugby Sevens team shirt sponsors. The Kenya  Rugby Union announced the partnership on Tuesday with  Kenya's Sports betting firm  at a function held in Nairobi.

The betting firm takes over sponsorship from outgoing shirt sponsors Kenya Airways just a month before the start of the new world sevens rugby series  in Dubai on the weekend of  3rd December.

The new sponsorship deal comes months after SportPesa also unveiled 650 Million shillings  sponsorship partnership with the Kenya Rugby Union.

In a statement during the press briefing in Nairobi, KRU Chairman Richard Omwela, said, “We are pleased with the partnership we have forged with SportPesa. Our sevens team has time and again proven that they are world beaters and with SportPesa’s input, they can scale even greater heights ."

Omwela  further paid tribute to outgoing shirt sponsors Kenya Airways, saying, “ We appreciate the support that Kenya Airways have accorded the Kenya Sevens team and the Kenya Rugby Union in general. It has been invaluable and has gone a long way in raising the team’s stock on the global stage, We continue to work with our national airline closely as the promotion of their destinations through Rugby is key to our travelling fan base and Kenya as a sport tourism destination.
