On Wednesday, popular betting company in Kenya, Mozzart Bet reaffirmed its sponsorship for the Malkia Strikers, the country’s women’s volleyball squad.
The one-and-a-half-year deal is now worth Sh15 million, an increase from the initial sponsorship of Sh10 million agreed upon prior to the FIVB World Championships last year. According to the agreement, Mozzart Bet will serve as Malkia Strikers’ Title Sponsor till July 2025.
The collaboration takes place just before the Malkia Strikers depart for Morocco on Friday for a FIVB High-Performance Training before traveling to France for the FIVB Women’s Challenger Cup, which will take place from July 27 to 20.
On August 6–18, the team will compete in the African Nations Championship in Cameroon. The team was challenged by acting KVF chairman Charles Nyaberi to go out and conquer the world so they could sail smoothly into the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
The beauty about all these is that it’s no longer a qualification process to the Olympics but the maximum points the team acquires. And that’s why the team will be seeking to earn points at the Challenger Cup and the African Championship so that come next year, we will be the outright African representatives. We thank Mozzart Bet for their support and we promise them full visibility.said Nyaberi.
I thank KVF for giving us the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to supporting Malkia Strikers. We firmly believe in the power of sports to unite, inspire and empower individuals and our partnership with Malkia Strikers exemplifies this belief.
Your dedication, determination, and unwavering spirit have earned you a special place in the hearts of Kenyans. Your success is statement to the talent and potential that exists within our nation and we are honored to be part of your journey.said Sasa Krneta, Mozzart Bet Country Manager
Paul Bitok, the team’s assistant coach, said they are prepared to defend their African Nations Championship crown.
Malkia Strikers last won the championship in 2015; they have since finished second in 2017; third in 2019; and fourth in 2021, according to Bitok.
We thank Mozzart Bet for renewing our partnership. Last year when all seemed lost, they came on board and necessitated our stay in Brazil and Netherlands during the World Championship. The girls were on a go slow after the government failed to pay their allowances as it was in the transition process but Mozzart Bet came in and made it possible.Bitok said
Team assistant captain Trizah Atuka lauded the betting company for the timely gesture saying that it was a morale booster ahead of the two crucial events. “We hope that we will reward their commitment and the good gesture by reclaiming the African title.”
