The directors of Thika United Football club wish to invite well-wishers and people of good will to join the family and support, as the club embarks on regrouping and preparing for the upcoming NSL league.
For the last Nineteen (19) years, and through wise investment in players, technical team and managers, the club has won the hearts of football enthusiasts by the abundance of young talents that have come through the club’s football philosophy.
This was evident on 17/10/2018 at the Thika sub-county stadium when the club paid her last respect to the late Dennis Lewa Mwangala who perished in the fort ternan horrible bus accident.
Over 50 former and current Thika United Football Club players including Harambee Stars sensations Francis Kahata(Gor Mahia) and Dennis Odhiambo(Sofapaka), Clifton Miheso(Buildcon FC – Zambia), former team captain Stephen Ocholla (formerly Ulinzi) and Thika sub-county prosecutor Paul Anunda just to mention a few who took the pitch in a tribute match organized by friends of Lewa.
Thika United’s record in nurturing, growing and developing young talents is second to none and the club aspires to continue investing in the young football talents of this great nation. Out of the 18 clubs confirmed for the 2019 SPL season, 15 clubs have one or more players who graduated from the Thika United FC youth program.
After 17 years of top tier (Premier League) football, the club went through very difficult financial periods during the past two seasons (2017 and 2018) which led to a mass exodus of players to other well-paying clubs bringing about a string of poor results and hence the club’s relegation to the National Super League (2nd tier division).
Many thanks to Brookside Dairy Limited, whose partnership with the club elapsed for their support to the club over the years (15yrs), the company adopted a four year old and took good care of the baby. For that, it’s a big thank you from the Thika United family to the company for her support as the club walked through
the journey to teenage. Special thanks to the Chairman of Brookside group for initiating the adoption and for his unwavering support to the club.
In the early nineties (90s), the then and only premier league side from the larger mount Kenya region KTM FC collapsed after their main sponsor Kenya Taitex Mills Ltd was placed under receivership. We are hoping that the cooperate world will join us as we strive to avoid a similar scenario.
The club is therefore appealing to any willing cooperate sponsors to contact the club directors for further discussions on either a business partnership arrangement or a complete takeover.
The club has been a success story over the years with a very lean budget of between ten and eighteen million kenya shillings per season while most if not all of its competitors operated with budgets more than double or even three times the club’s annual budget.
We believe that with more funding, Thika United Football Club can make great progress and continue in the development of more superstars and hence our Kenyan football.
