Global online sports betting and gaming operator 10bet has donated soccer gear to Former Kenya Premier League (KPL) side Re-Union FC, as part of its ongoing efforts and commitment to supporting sports in local communities.
The sporting apparatus handed over by 10bet Kenya to the club during an event held at Ziwani Umeme Grounds, consisted of 40 full playing kits, soccer balls, shin guards, goalkeeper gloves and a first aid box.

It has been difficult to reach the standard of soccer that we believed we could however, this contribution from 10bet will certainly take us many steps closer. As a club, we hope these measures by 10bet to support soccer in Kenya will encourage other companies to follow suite and take football in our communities to greater heights.”
