The state of financial desperation at the Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia seems to be getting out of hands following their recent non-stop appeal for help from fans and well-wishers.
Matters started going south when the license of their sponsors Sportpesa was suspended by the government in July leaving them with no penny, literary.
It almost, prematurely, cost them their CAF Champions League title quest ahead of their first leg match against USM Alger mid this month. They had to conduct a fundraiser and rely on government support for their outing to Algeria.
Things seem to be getting harder by day. For instance, on Tuesday, September 25, their Treasurer called upon fans to help the team raise money ahead of their return leg tie set for Sunday this week.
“As we look forward to what will obviously be an entertaining game, we invite our dear fans and friends of Gor (Mahia) to turn up in droves and support the club. We also invite you to make your kind donations and contributions to the club via our paybill number 350100. You are our strength, and your support is our joy,” she said.
On Wednesday, the club made a provoking tweet of fans donating kits to the players with a link to donation done in 2015.
