What is SportPesa?
We are a technology and entertainment company specialising in the growth of popular sports engagement.
SportPesa is our brand and it is fast becoming a globally recognised one, but it has its roots in local success and commitment to community grassroots, sports development.

By leapfrog adoption of technology, quick and deep penetration of mobile communication networks many innovations have created opportunities and much improved and enhanced the quality of life for people of all walks of life.
