Division One side Kabrass United has given a vivid
explanation as to why they decided to discard the community tag and revert to
their sponsors name [West Kenyan Sugar FC].
In a communiqué to futaa.com,
the club stated that they needed to be more accommodative and diverse something
that was not possible when under a sub-tribe’s tag.
The club also wants to promote their sponsors West Kenyan
Sugar since they pay their bills which enables them run the club and
participate in league matches.
- The sponsor who has made the team be the way it is now
should also be promoted. The earlier name was much of sub-tribe thus less
interest was experienced from fans over Kenya.
Not yet for community
based clubs always propagate political agenda. Confirm with the Kenya Premier League
and get the answer for yourself. This
comes with wrangles because of too much politics.
- The Clubs[Community
based]will only be successful after proper education to the concerned
communities on the importance of having sports development especially football which
may take some time.
Sugar Company owns and pays the club’s footballers and the club has therefore
seen this as a golden chance to market the company’s products.
