The year started with good tidings for grassroots teams as they received playing kits and equipment courtesy of gaming firm OdiBets.
It has been a hive of activities in the Coast, as well as Upper and lower Eastern regions for OdiBets as they kitted County leagues with kits.
OdiBets was actualizing its partnership with the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) of kitting the federation’s teams taking part in its various county leagues the FKF seventh tier league in the promotion of grassroots soccer.
In the partnership, each of the FKF County league clubs are supposed to benefit in kind by receiving six balls as well as being kitted with a set of home and away playing uniform.
Starting January 11th, clubs in the Coast region had their day in a two day exercise where the FKF South Coast chairman Gabriel Mghendi paid a glowing tribute to OdiBets for the initiative.
“Clubs at the grassroots have been struggling to get proper equipment and kits. This is a timely boost and I am confident that it will go a long way in actualizing the dreams of young talented players in the Coast region,” said Mghendi.
The bookmakers shifted their base to FKF Southern branch on January 15 and 16 to gift clubs from Machakos, Makueni and Kitui counties with the provisions.
On January 18th, the OdiMtaani heat was felt in the Upper Eastern region which comprises of Meru, Embu and Isiolo where the exercise was carried out in the kitting exercise.
The OdiMtaani wave now shifts to the Rift Valley, Western and North Eastern regions next month for a piece of the OdiBets pie.
