Shujaa Rugby Team Set for Play-Off in Madrid Without SportPesa Branding

Kenyan rugby team Shujaa will not be sporting the familiar SportPesa branding on their kits in the upcoming playoffs.

The news comes as the team gears up for the game in Madrid starting on May 31, 2024.

The Spanish Betting Laws

This decision is in compliance with Spanish laws prohibiting shirt sponsorships by betting firms, and should not be misconstrued as a deliberate snub by the players or management towards SportPesa, their esteemed partner.

“The boys will not play in SportPesa-branded kits, following a policy with the Spanish laws that prohibit shirt sponsorships by betting firms,” said SportPesa in a statement Thursday.

The journey of the Shujaa team has not been without challenges, most notably their relegation from the HSBC World Sevens Series in May 2023.

This series of achievements signifies the positive impact of the partnership on the growth and development of rugby in Kenya.
