FAI ends SportPesa contract after rescue deal

The Football Association of Ireland has ended a sponsorship deal with Kenyan bookmaker SportPesa as part of a government-backed rescue agreement for the embattled governing body.

SportPesa further enhanced its football sponsorship portfolio by agreeing a two-year deal with the FAI back in March 2019. However, the FAI has since been mired in significant financial troubles, with its debt levels said to have reached €62m ($68.6m).
