Never thought somebody would ever think of Kenyan football fans in such a better way like these people you’re gonna read about. You know, we Kenyans love our football.
Take a quick example; me. Every weekend, apart from me punching the keys of my computer telling the story of my team in the best way I know how, I also visit the stadium. Drabbed in my favorite colours, I scream my all, I show my passion and what a beauty it is each match day to don that jersey I always adore.
It’s not just about the jersey alone, it’s about style. It’s about standing out, sorry – Kutokelezea. More often than not, I’m left frustrated when the heavens finally open or even when the weather turns for the worst. Everybody loves some good Kenyan sunshine you know; so that worries me not. So what happens when the rains finally come or when the cold weather finally takes over; I have to carry my jumper or sweater- which of cause has no club colours.
As a fan I guess you know the beauty of supporting your club is always having the club colours on your body.
So let me tell you about the person who has all the Kenyans fans interests at heart; NATION MEDIA GROUP.
For the first time in Kenya; NMG introduces limited edition football Jalee’s (Jackets) which visibly show what team you support and not only that; your club get’s to benefit from the sale with a 12% of the proceeds of each jacket going directly to their kitty.
Imagine yourself in your club’s jacket, imagine yourself not only in your club’s jacket; but in a jacket that has your club’s crest firmly printed on it. Who wouldn’t want that? I know you surely do.

So for a period of three weeks starting August 30th, NMG will carry a discount coupon in the sports edition of the Daily Nation. Fans just have to collect SEVEN, present them together with Kshs 3,500 cash in order to secure an exclusive jacket. Don’t worry about your location; you can present your cash and coupons at key Nation offices countrywide.
Limited availability of stocks means that one will have to book in advance using the SMS Code 5428(SMS charges are Ksh’s 10 each for Safaricom subscribers). Thereafter, fans will receive instructions on where and how they can obtain their preferred jacket(s).
Daily Nation as a newspaper through this initiative, seeks to support Local Football and pave way for more brands/organizations to partner with local clubs in a visible manner that will not only benefit the clubs, but also the fans.
Though it’s GOR MAHIA (KOGALO) and AFC LEOPARDS (INGWEE) jalee’s that are currently available, other football team jackets will follow soon i.e Ulinzi Stars, Soafapaka.
