Mashemeji derby raised Sh3.9 m in gate collection

Sunday’s Mashemeji Derby between powerhouses AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia raised Sh 3.9 million in gate collections.

Some 11,390 fans attended the match.

The main stand tickets retailed at Sh 600, while the terraces tickets went for Sh 300.

Leopards secretary general Asava Kadima confirmed the figure to Nairobi News on Monday.

The monies are expected to help relieve the financial burden currently plaguing the club in the wake of lack of shirt sponsors.

Backroom staff and the playing unit are owed hefty salary arrears as well.

Leopards have lately been walking on a tight rope financially. Head coach Zdravko Logarusic skipped the team’s match against Thika United in Mumias nine days ago to demand part of his pay.
