Gor Mahia fans will have to dig deep into their pockets to witness their club attempt to end their 17-year wait to win the Kenya Premier league title when they face Thika United at City Stadium this Saturday.
Gor Mahia assistant secretary Ronald Ngala said the club is looking at possibilities of increasing the normal ticket prices by one hundred shillings to cater for an expected increase in their match day expenses, where victory will win them their 13th league title
"We expect to double our security apparatus for the match because of the number of fans who will turn up and the expectations they are having going into the match," he explained.
"There is a real possibility that we will have an unprecedented number of fans at the stadium--both in and out-- and their security must be guaranteed regardless of where they will be before or after the match," said Ngala.
The clubs officials were holed up in a meeting yesterday strategising for what is expected to be a day of pomp and colour for the club's faithfuls.
Should their proposals sail through, tickets for the historic match day will be sold at Sh300 for the terrace and Sh600 for the main stand, making them the most expensive tickets for a league match.
Last weekend, the club's encounter with Muhoroni Sugar netted record Sh2.4m in gate collections and the match against Thika is expected to go beyond.
Ngala also revealed that there were tentative plans to hold celebrations should they overcome Thika although the plans are still under close wrap.
"We do not want to get into a celebratory mood just yet but when we finally achieve our target, there is no doubt we will have a massive party," he said. Gor hold a one-point lead at the top of the Kenya Premier League with Tusker and AFC Leopards breathing down their necks
