FKF President Nick Mwendwa thanked Mozzart Bet for their support.
“Thank you for believing in Kenyan football, and for believing in the Harambee Stars.

We lok forward to a great partnership,” FKF boss Nick Mwendwa said.
“We did not get the result we wanted in Agadir but I believe in this team, I know its potential and I am sure better results are on the way.
