ELDORET, Kenya – The winning Men’s football team at the inaugural BingwaFest 2023, GFE 105 from Eldoret, has secured sponsorship from leading Kenyan bookmaker, Betika. The sponsorship comes on the back of not only impressive performances on the pitch but also exemplary organization and professionalism from the team’s technical bench as well.

This was the reason why GFE 105 FC, winners of the 2011 Safaricom National Sakata Ball Challenge, emerged victorious once more at BingwaFest, bringing them to Betika’s attention. The Football Kenya Federation Division one team, ‘105,’ as they are referred to by their legions of fans in Eldoret, is a regular giant killer, always punching above their weight. In 2013, the club beat Kenyan topflight mainstays and current table-toppers Gor Mahia 4-2 on penalties after holding them to a draw in the regulation tie at the GoTV tournament. A year later, 105 played two FKF Premier League teams, beating KRA, now Ushuru FC, on penalties once more.

“Betika is thrilled to announce our sponsorship of GFE 105, the outstanding Men’s football champions at BingwaFest 2023. Their dedication, teamwork, and extraordinary performance embody the spirit of the sport,” remarked Mutua Mutava, Deputy Managing Director and Group CFO at Betika, who announced the decision while awarding the team a Sh1m cheque after winning the BingwaFest 2023 football category.

This sponsorship signifies Betika’s commitment to raising the sport’s profile in Kenya as well as fostering talent and supporting grassroots sports development across Kenya. By partnering with GFE 105, Betika aims to empower these talented athletes to pursue their dreams and aspirations in football, with a view of rising to the summit of Kenyan football.

GFE 105’s victory at BingwaFest 2023 represents a significant milestone, showcasing their determination and prowess on the field. Betika is proud to stand with them and reignite our collective passion for sports by driving people back to the stadiums and we look forward to a fruitful partnership that nurtures their potential and contributes to the growth of football in Eldoret and beyond.

BingwaFest 2023 was a one-of-a-kind sporting extravaganza that was designed in mind to help our Kenyan youth who have a wealth of abilities that are untapped due to lack of opportunities and support.
