KCB joins forces with Madira Girls’ Soccer Academy to nature talent

KCB Bank’s football team has partnered with the Madira Girls’ Soccer Academy to invigorate the rise of young and promising football stars. In the deal, KCB Bank will cover the school fees for ten players, amounting to roughly Kes500,000 contribution for the upcoming 2023/2024 season.

The collaboration will, however, extend beyond financial aid, with the bank pledging non-monetary support, including footballs and training equipment, aimed at nurturing budding talents.

Madira Girls’ Soccer Academy, often recognized as the Madira Soccer Assassins, achieved a remarkable feat by clinching the championship title in the 2022/2023 FKF Women Division One League. This triumph propelled them higher in the Women Premier League, marking their ascent to the top-tier division.

KCB FC Chairman, Bramwel Simiyu, said, “KCB has consistently taken the lead in sports sponsorship, making a significant impact in this arena. Through our involvement in sports, we have brought joy to countless individuals within our nation and beyond.”
