According to sources at the KPL, clubs will receive an average of Sh250,000 monthly in grants

Kenyan Premier League clubs should not expect an increase in the annual grant from the league runners despite KPL signing a new title sponsorship deal with SportPesa.

The gaming giant signed Sh260 million three-year-deal with KPL last week.

But Gor Mahia assistant Secretary General Ronald Ngala, has warned that the new deal may not have a significant impact in the bank accounts of clubs.

“There was no significant improvement in the new deal and the last one so I don’t think there will be an improvement because last time clubs also received money from SuperSport (broadcast partner).

Gor Mahia, for example, used to receive seven million from KPL annually, but Ngala says clubs will have to look for alternative sources of income to make ends meet.

Ngala said that K’Ogalo are currently engaging other potential sponsors through professional a marketer.

K’Ogalo are also expecting to raise more revenues from the sale of merchandise and membership registration.
