Former Harambee Stars midfielder McDonald Mariga has agreed to a multi-million shilling deal to become Betin’s brand ambassador.

Nairobi News understands the terms of the year long deal will entail having the player’s image appear in a majority of the betting firm‘s merchandise, including billboards, TV and newspaper adverts.
The player will also take part in a number of activation for the betting firm on the local front.
“My focus is to continue mentoring and leave a legacy for young Kenyan footballers from the grassroots to top leagues,” Mariga commented in relation to this deal.
Mariga now joins ex-international Dennis Oliech who enjoys a similar deal with rival betting firm Betway.
