Gor Mahia will roll out its cashless ticketing on Sunday when they host  their Burundian champions league opponents Aigle Noir at Kasarani.

Club CEO Lordvic Aduda says tickets will not be sold at the gate as has been the case before saying this is aimed at ensuring maximum collection from the sale of tickets.

‘’We will not be accepting cash and this will include all our home matches. Fake tickets have been sold in the past and we realized that we have been losing a lot to fake ticket printers’’, explained Aduda.

The system, according to Aduda,  is also in line with the club’s policy of implementing hassle-free access to Gor Mahia’s match day tickets. To purchase our ticket, one will need to visit the website ticketing menu or  https://gormahiafc.co.ke/e-ticketing.

One will require to register as a normal user , fill in the required details including Mpesa phone number to be used for ticket purchase. You will thereafter choose your ticket category ranging from regular, VIP and VVIP.

The payment goes to Africa Data Technologies Limited who manage the ticketing system, and the ticket will be sent to one’s email for acknowledgment or purchase and printing.

An Mpesa SMS you received will have the purchased  ticket ID which can be sued to validate the ticket.

‘’We would like to inform our fans to visit the site and book their tickets in advance and no cash will be accepted at the gate. To avoid inconvenience on Sunday, all our fans should book their online tickets in advance’’.

Gor Mahia has in the past been found in financial dilemma from late payment of salaries and allowances  to lack of finance for international assignments.

This has been the prayer of most fans who have been attributing the lack of finances in the club to corruption.

Gor Mahia has been a regular guest  to the Sports, Culture and the Arts Ministry whenever they have international assignments and the Ministry has always made it possible for them to honour such assignments by bailing out their travel expenses.

The Club’s major sponsor Sportpesa has since pulled out due to tax standoff with the government and it is not clear whether or not they will renew their sponsorship when the tax dilemma is resolved.

A coomendable idea that is, but what remains to be seen is the success of the new system since most of Gor Mahia fans are hustlers who may not be privy to smart phones.

The club should deploy enough security during this Sunday’s CAF Champions League match to avert any possibility for forceful entry by fans who will not have acquired the tickets digitally. This is not new t with Gor  Mahia fans.

This is even as the club’  deputy  secretary general Ronald Ngala says the charges will be Ksh.500 for VIP stands and 200 for terraces. Ngala has urged K’Ogalo fans to turn out in their numbers and give Gor Mahia massive support on Sunday.

Their Burundian CAF opponents have since arrived in the country in readiness for the match and will have a feel of Kasarani stadium tomorrow 4pm prior to the secons leg clash the fillowing day.

Gor managed a point away in Bujumbura in the first leg courtesy of a goalless draw.
