Chivas Becomes Man United's Spirits Partner

The original luxury blended Scotch whisky, Chivas, has teamed up with the world’s biggest football club, Manchester United, in a three-year global partnership.

The collaboration will see Chivas and Manchester United join forces to celebrate their collective belief that blended is better – in life, football and Scotch. Just as Chivas brings together Scotland’s best malt and grain whiskies to create something extraordinary in the bottle, Manchester United brings together the world’s best footballers, a dedicated club team and a legion of fans all around the world to create extraordinary results on the pitch.

The partnership was revealed to fans in advance of the Club’s first Premier League home game of the 2018/19 season on Friday 10th August, through a film that explores the unique blend of characteristics that make up the Manchester United team. Shot in Los Angeles during the Club’s pre-season tour, the film stars an array of Manchester United first team players revealing an often unseen side to them, showing what defines who they are, both on and off the pitch.

Throughout the season, Chivas will be collaborating with Manchester United to demonstrate that blended is better – by encouraging fans to celebrate the blend that makes them unique, and showing that when players collaborate with their teammates they can achieve the greatest success.

Jean-Christophe Coutures, Chairman and CEO at Chivas Brothers, commented: “Blending has been in our DNA ever since James and John Chivas pioneered the art in 19th century Scotland. Partnering with Manchester United was therefore a natural fit; we both firmly believe that great things can be achieved when we come together - from balancing the perfect blend of malt and grain whiskies that go into our Scotch, to using the perfect combination of players’ skills on the pitch to create a winning team. We look forward to using our spirit to help showcase the spirit of the Club and its fans all around the world.”

Richard Arnold, Group Managing Director at Manchester United, commented: “Manchester United’s history is built on teamwork and we embrace Chivas’ belief that ‘blended is better.’ Our success both on and off the pitch allows us to bring together the best mix of people who help to make our Club the global name it is today. Each individual has their own skills but the way in which they blend together is what makes us a united team. It is a pleasure to welcome Chivas as Manchester United’s Global Spirits Partner and we look forward to working together to share this belief with our fans.”

Harambee Stars Shift Attention to Congo after Rwanda Assignment

Kenya national team Harambee Stars are expected to return in the country today, June 8, after a fairly strong show away in Rwanda.

Stars traveled to Kigali on Friday last week and participated in a four-nation tournament to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the 1994 Rwanda genocide. Bobby Williamson’s side were held to a barren draw against hosts Rwanda at the Amahoro Stadium in their first clash.

They however turned on the style on Sunday, beating neighbours South Sudan 2-0. Captain, Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama netted the opener from the spot in the first half, before Gor Mahia hitman Michael Olunga added the second late on in the match. 

It was Olunga’s senior and he marked it with a goal, his fourth strike in Kenyan colours having bagged a hat-trick in last month’s Olympics Qualifier clash against Botswana. 

Stars , who are now full-strength after the end of the Kenya Premier League mid-season will now focus their attention in the first leg AFCON qualifier clash away to Congo Brazzaville set for Owande City this Sunday.

And That's thesteifmastertake!!

Gor Mahia Finish First Half of KPL Season Unbeaten

Reigning Kenya Premier League Champions, Gor Mahia, beat Tusker 1-0 in a tense clash at Moi Stadium, Kisumu, to finish the half-season unbeaten.

Rwandan forward, Meddie Kagere had the capacity crowd at the Stadium celebrating after he found the winning goal in the 77th minute.

Gor Mahia began the match in a cagey manner and could have fallen behind as early as the third minute when Jesse Were was let through but Musa Mohamed recovered just in time to make a timely interception before the forward pulled the trigger.

The nervy moment awakened the two-time KPL champions and Michael Olunga thought he had scored against his former employers but Tusker keeper Martin Musalia pulled off a double save. Olunga was proving a constant threat keeping Brewers center-halves Donald Mosoti and Loyd Wahome awake all the time.

However, neither of the two KPL giants managed to take the lead with the game leveled 0-0 at the break. Franck Nuttal’s side began the second half with more intent and decided to attack the wings. Karim Nizigiyimana floated in crosses into the Tusker box but Kagere and Olunga failed to connect.

Kogalo would find the breakthrough in the 77th minute with Kagere netting, his 9th strike of the season. The 14-time champions managed the rest of the match to claim the three points which all but ended Tusker’s slim title hopes.

With Sofapaka losing 1-0 in a dramatic clash with AFC Leopards, Gor Mahia closed the half-season with a 12-point lead.

In a match played earlier at the same stadium, substitute Allan Katerega scored an 81st winner for Ushuru FC in a 1-0 win over hosts Western Stima. The dull game only sprung to life after Katerega entered the scene in place of Mohamed Hassan. He headed home a Moses Odhiambo cross to give Ken Kenyatta’s side the full points which took them 5th on the log.
