Then one year deal was unveiled on March 31 at a Nairobi Hotel to help Sofapaka end its financial constrains that it has been going through.

According to the club, the unveiling of the new sponsorship is in line with keeping with the pledge made by the club management earlier this month as part of the concerted efforts to conform and comply with the club licensing regulations set by FIFA and CAF, and reinforced by FKF.

Last season, the club narrowly escaped relegation only to be dropped by the Football Kenya Federation together with Muhoroni after failing to meet the FIFA Club Licensing criteria.

This resulted to push and pull between the two parties together with the Kenyan Premier League Limited with the KPL pair filing the case against the FKF's verdict to the Sports Disputes Tribunal. The boardroom fight caused the new season to be postponed but eventually the KPL duo won the case and maintained its top flight status.

The 2009 KPL champions have kicked off the new season with a 1-0 loss to SoNy Sugar and a 3-0 win  over Western Stima.
