“Being a responsible gaming provider since the very beginning we aim to bring more engagement and excitement together with Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards in the near future.”
Chairman of AFC Leopards Dan Shikanda has said: “We are very proud to announce this new major deal with the Betsafe brand, especially to our fans.
