The money will cater for player’s allowances, new signings and salaries. Homeboyz finished ninth with 51 points in Kenyan Premier League last season.

The Bill has since been assented to Governor Wycliffe Oparanya making it a county law. Homeboyz will get Sh25million set aside to finance sporting activities.
