K’Ogalo has been officially handed a training ground at Two Rivers by businessman Chris Kirubi. The event was attended by the Club Patron – Prime Minister Hon. Raila Amollo Odinga.
Previously, the club training ground was at Camp Toyoyo on artificial turf but has now moved to natural grass with their training that began in September.
The club Chairman Ambrose Rachier was upbear and appreciated the good gesture.
“We thank Chairman Chris Kirubi for partnering with us and giving us a training ground which we have been using for slightly one month now while observing the COVID-19 protocols like social distancing. Camp Toyoyo is overcrowded and we did not have sufficient time to train, now here at Two Rivers we train in the morning and evening and also gives us the privacy we need,” Rachier said during the function at Two Rivers.
Speaking to the team, Chris Kurubi confirmed the sponsorship saying the venue will go a long way in boosting the team’s preparations ahead of their Kenyan Premier League title defense, competing at the CAF Champions League and the Football Kenya Federation Shield.
“We will give Gor the necessary support that they need so that they can prosper and I urge everyone to come on board so that the team can continue being the leading team in Kenya. I beg our young players to be careful and disciplined. We are looking forward to a happy relationship,” Kirubi, who is the Director at Two Rivers, said.
He added, “I never thought we will ever get to host Gor Mahia as our partners. We are proud that Gor is here with us.”
The Club Patron Raila Amollo Odinga urged the corporate world to come forward and support community clubs in a bid to bolster the standards of the sport in the country.
“I’m appealing to the corporate world to come forward and support community clubs a lot more. If they don’t do it, the clubs will die, and if they die the spirit of soccer will also die,” Raila stated.
