In the wake of football hooliganism
Kenyan online sports betting operator SportPesa has suspended its shirt sponsorship of Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards football clubs following violent hooliganism by fans from both clubs over the past two weeks.
The company made the announcement following a tough ruling from the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) that will dock six points off football teams whose fans misbehave and relegation to a lower division should the offences be repeated three times.
"We are getting increasingly concerned with the hooliganism and believe that stiff measures must be meted out to end it," said Nick Mwendwa, president of the FKF.
