On behalf of KBL, I would like to heartily congratulate the 2016 Kenya Premier League (KPL) champions Tusker FC on completing a historic season, winning the league and cup double for the first time in the club’s 47-year history.

The season’s successes have been as a result of collective and consistent efforts from not only the players but also the management and the brand team at Tusker.

I would like to first commend the head coach Paul Nkata, who only took over in January, for guiding the players to a stellar season. The team’s gallant efforts were also complemented by Charles Obiny, the club CEO and George Opondo the Team Manager, under whose leadership we reached this milestone.

And, of course, the players, for their tireless efforts throughout the season culminating to the club’s remarkable double glory. Last but not least, I want to appreciate Tusker FC’s growing legion of fans who have stood with the side over the years while playing both at home and on the road.

As part of the KBL family, Tusker FC remains core to our company’s principle of supporting and building our youth through sports.

I promise the team that we will continue supporting them going forward - this is only the start of our great journey towards turning Tusker FC into a continental giant.

With the GoTV Shield and KPL titles now sitting at the Ruaraka stadium, we now embark on conquering the Continent.

I am looking forward to joining you in celebrating this great season as we get ready to doing this again next year!
