Gor Mahia will not take anything below eight million Kenyan shillings from the derby game played on Sunday 18 March pitting the club against perennial rivals AFC Leopards.

This is according to the club’s vice chairman Faiz Ochieng, who has used the Harambee Stars game against Togo on Wednesday 29 February as a yard stick for the expected amount from this game.

Not less

Speaking to futaa.com, the official said that if with a half full stadium the Harambee Stars game raised six million shillings then he expects the derby to have raised not less than eight million because the stadium was packed to capacity.

-From the turnout seen during the game, we are not expecting anything less than in the region of eight million and I am very categorical about this. I have not been informed about the gate collections in amount but it is just common sense that with the full stadium we can’t raise anything less than that.

Waiting for public announcement

-If the Harambee Stars game against Togo was half full and six million shillings was raised, there is no way this game will have raised less than eight so am just waiting for the figures to be made public, he said.

The game had to be stopped for about 26 minutes due to fan trouble after Gor Mahia’s Ali Abondo was red carded and it ended in a draw for the two great rivals.
