For many years Kenyans have been great supporters of English premier league teams such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester city, arsenal and many others. However in the recent past, this practice has been reducing due to emergence of popular football clubs in Kenya such as Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards FC and many others. This implies that Kenyans now are becoming fans of Kenyan teams. In fact they often attend matches of these teams in Kenyan stadiums such as Kasarani Stadium.
Despite improvement of Kenyan football clubs, they are still behind when considering world class status. Right from payment of footballers, value of the clubs, there is huge difference. For instance you find that European footballers such as Leonel Messi collects over Ksh106 million per week while Kenyan footballer collects about Ksh70,000 to ksh85,000 per month. What a huge difference!
However nobody is to be blamed for this, we are still growing. Despite being behind world class level, some football clubs in Kenya are fast growing and are doing well, in fact they even have large numbers of fans all over the country. This makes such clubs to be richer than other clubs in the Kenya. Thus allow me present to you the richest clubs in the country with their value.

2.AFC Leopards FC (About Ksh52 million)
