Nakuru - Nakuru governor Kinuthia Mbugua has urged the national body Football Kenya Federation to host more Harambee Stars matches in the County.
This is after a mammoth crowd turned up at the Afraha Stadium Tuesday to support the Stars in their CECAFA Challenge Cup clash with Zanzibar.
The national team won 2-0 and Kinuthia, who had pleged before kick-off that he would award the Stars KES 1 Million if they won, said that he would like to see the team in town more often.
" I think that the fan turnout speaks for itself in terms of appeal, he said.
" There has been no such crowd in other towns and it makes a real case for Nakuru to get the national team playing here more often.
" We have the infrastructure and the will to host matches of this caliber and we have shown that we love the game too.
" Obviously, I will ask the Federation to consider having the Stars matches here more often and give the people of this County something to cheer about, he added.
There will be four other matches played at Afraha with two on Wednesday and a further two Thursday.
