In Summary
  • One of the biggest selling point is that the facility can be used for other events including concerts to raise revenue..
  • Playing on our own stadium will also allow Ingwe to sell advertisement space. Now, that is moving to the next level.
  • While sponsorship is always not easy to find, the group has brilliant ideas of trying to look for ways to stop the club from depending on wealthy individuals and politicians for survival.

The recent initiatives taken by a group of AFC Leopards fans drumming support to build a stadium for the club is laudable and should, in my opinion, be encouraged by various Ingwe followers wherever they are.

It is devastating that at 53 years of age, AFC Leopards just like noisy arch rivals Gor Mahia, 49, lack even ownership of the most basic training facilities leave alone a stadium, and accommodation for players.

It is my opinion that any co-operation aimed at bringing in the financial and administrative know-how, can only be a bonus for the club.

In turn, the management should make most of the opportunity and show good accountability and sincerity in all dealings - a common accusation by investors.

Ingwe supporters led by former club official, Richard Ekhalie came up with the visionary “Den Project” idea last year and more fans have hence joined hands to make the project a success.

The club bus was acquired through this project.

According to Ekhalie, the forum is not partisan but will accord club members a golden opportunity to invest in a 20,000-seater modern stadium for AFC Leopards.

Ingwe is a national club with fanatical support across the country, plus enviable following internationally, but they must know that when it comes to training and games, being in your own stadium brings flexibility.

One of the biggest selling point is that the facility can be used for other events including concerts to raise revenue..

Playing on our own stadium will also allow Ingwe to sell advertisement space. Now, that is moving to the next level.
