Road to Qatar 2022: Harambee Stars set for mega sponsorship

The Kenya national team Harambee Stars will receive a major boost ahead of the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers with the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) set to announce a sponsorship package in the region of Kshs 100m.

In the qualifiers, which start in June, Harambee Stars are in the same group with Uganda, Rwanda and Mali as they attempt to make history by going to the World Cup for the first time.

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) is in advanced stages of securing a multimillion deal with a sponsor to support Harambee Stars campaign, with details set to be revealed in the next few days.

Best preparations

The mega sponsorship deal is meant to ensure that Stars have the best preparations before and during the qualifiers with the focus sharply trained on ensuring the team graces the World Cup finals.

“The deal will ensure that players are well taken care of during the campaign. We are not taking any chances on this,” said our sources at the FKF.

The federation has decided to start early preparations for the team considering the BetKing Kenyan Premier League (BKPL) is currently suspended owing to increasing cases of Covid-19.

Harambee Stars are scheduled to go to camp early next week to begin preparations for their first match against Uganda in June.
