SportPesa to take 10 lucky fans to London to watch Arsenal

Ten Kenyan football fans will in the coming month travel to London to visit the Emirates Stadium, home to English Premier League side, Arsenal and watch a game courtesy of SportPesa.

The lucky winners for the once in a life-time opportunity were announced by betting firm SportPesa on Thursday at a Nairobi hotel.

The winners of the ‘Road to Emirates’ competition, which has been running during the month of September, will also get a chance to tour the Emirates Stadium, watch a live Arsenal game and tour London.

“We are happy to reward our fans. This is only the beginning. Many Kenyans took part in this competition and therefore we plan to have another one very soon,” said SportPesa Chief Executive Officer Ronald Karauri.


Among the first 10 lucky winners is an education officer, a businessman, a security officer and a teacher.

Following the partnership, Arsenal fans in Kenya will also be offered a range of club-related benefits, including official merchandise and match tickets to see the team in action at Emirates Stadium.

SportPesa will also engage directly with Arsenal’s African supporters through the club’s digital channels and marketing initiatives featuring first-team players and club legends.

The deal is also geared towards nurturing grassroots football and supporting SportPesa’s existing sponsorship of the Kenya Premier League in Kenya.
