Marco Silva’s Everton side will welcome Kenyan SportPesa Premier League champions Gor Mahia FC to Goodison Park on Tuesday November 6.
The historic fixture will kick-off at 7pm and will mark the first occasion an East African club side has contested a match in the UK.
Tickets are priced at just £5 for adults and £1 for concessions with all match proceeds being donated to Everton in the Community to enable the Club’s official charity to continue its ground-breaking work across Merseyside and around the world.
Gor Mahia’s appearance in the SportPesa Trophy game at Goodison Park comes following the African’s club’s victory in the SportPesa Super Cup final in June where they beat Simba SC Tanzania 2-0 at the Afraha Stadium in Kenya.
Everton travelled to Tanzania in July 2017 to face inaugural SportPesa Super Cup winners Gor Mahia in a game the Blues won 2-1.
While in Tanzania the Blues, alongside SportPesa, won hearts and minds in the region when they participated in a range of promotional and charitable activities across Dar es Salaam.
Global gaming giant SportPesa is the Club’s Main Principal Partner. The company has grown dramatically since its inception in 2014 and quickly established itself as a significant investor and operator in the online gaming industry. Showing their commitment to the Liverpool city-region SportPesa set up its European HQ in Liverpool creating more than 100 jobs in the city.
As Africa’s leading sports gaming platform, SportPesa has acquired the status of a ‘super brand’ on the continent and is changing lives by accelerating development through sports and well-structured community initiatives. Everton and Sportpesa were recently rewarded for their partnership at the Sports Industry Awards, in the Best African Sponsorship and Pan-Africa Campaign of the Year categories.
An on-sale date for tickets for this historic fixture will be announced in due course.
