BLAZE by Safaricom has boosted the annual fifteen-aside Impala Floodies Rugby Tournament with a sponsorship of KES 3 million, up from last year’s KES 1.8 million.
The tourney, set to take place on three consecutive weekends, on 28th September, 5th October and 12th October, at Impala Grounds will be marking 38 years in 2019 while BLAZE by Safaricom will be celebrating the fourth year in a row it has sponsored the competition.
In 2018, the tournament attracted over 8,000 spectators with great sports talents on show. In 2019, Impala Floodies will consist of teams from high school to university to senior rugby teams as well as women’s rugby teams.
The BLAZE sponsorship includes KES 1 million in cash, and an additional KES 2 million in airtime, prizes, pitch branding and the provision of a fully-kitted media centre.
