Kenyan Rugby Legends Secure Sponsorship Deal with SportPesa

Leading online gaming firm SportPesa has renewed its partnership with Kenyan Rugby legends, providing KES 2 million in sponsorship support towards their upcoming doubleheader against their counterparts from Uganda.

The collaboration consolidates the successful legacy of Kenyan rugby while inspiring the next generation of talent. Coupled with SportPesa’s Tujiamini Initiative, the partnership with the Nondies Legends aims to develop and support rugby skills from mentorship to professional competition.

“We are excited to embark on this journey with the Nondies Legends because of their unparalleled legacy,” said Willis Ojwang, SportPesa’s Communication and Advertising Manager. “Through this partnership, we aim to ignite a flame that will burn in the hearts of young talented players, encouraging them to believe in themselves and their potential for success just like the Legends.”

The sponsorship marks SportPesa‘s continued commitment to the rich legacy of rugby in Kenya. Head coach Oscar Osir expressed gratitude for the support, noting that they expect a tougher challenge from Uganda this year compared to their dominant performances in 2023.

“We are delighted by this partnership with SportPesa as it will ensure that the youth can witness their heroes in action, learning from their prowess and passion for rugby while fostering a vibrant community of talent where rugby continues to thrive in the years to come,” Osir added.

Last year, the Kenyan legends won both their away and home fixtures against Uganda, clinching the 2023 Legends Cup. This year’s squad, which includes celebrated Shujaa icon Collins Injera, Lavin Asego, George Mbaye, Oscar Sudi, Moses Mukabane and captain Eddie Omondi, will play the first leg on 8 June at the Kings Park Arena in Kampala.

The partnership also includes coaching and mentorship sessions for young talent, as well as tournaments lined up for the Legends under the Tujiamini Initiative, further strengthening the development of rugby in Kenya.
