English Premier League (EPL) side Everton FC has on Saturday dumped SportPesa branded jersey’s to promote their own.

The reason behind the move has been explained as a day set aside to celebrate their official charity’s 32nd birthday.

“EITC will appear on the front of our shirts today, as we celebrate our official charity’s 32nd birthday!

Look out for bucket collectors around the ground, collecting funds to further develop their vital work.”

The change in jersey by Everton FC has been announced as a temporary one and will resume their normal attires in the next match.

It is reported that the EPL side nets Ksh 500 million in a year through the deal inked with SportPesa.

War on gambling

Currently, the company withdrew its services in Kenya following intervention by the government.

They were accused of failing to pay millions in taxes from their millions they collect as revenues.

A betting war ensued later on as the government spoke on the negativity the country face due to its addiction.

The same war has escalated to Europe where petitions have been filed to withdraw beting companies from having their names on club jersey’s.

Broken marriages, bankruptcy and increased deaths were some of the efforts highlighted in the petition.
