A top official of the company who asked not to be named, says they are getting increasingly concerned by the acts of fans' trouble and hints at pulling out if it persists

Mumias Sugar the sponsors of AFC Leopards have threatened to cut off their support for the club in the wake of increased hooliganism.

A top official of the company who asked not to be named, said they are getting increasingly concerned by the acts of hooliganism by club fans and pointed out it is creating a bad image for the company.

"One more incident like that experienced during the opening match against Chemelil and we will pull out."

"Furthermore, the company is currently doing badly in the market and will not hesitate to get out," the official told Goal.com.

Mumias Sugar last week announced decreased profits during the company's Annual General Meeting (AGM) in a move that was attributed to shortage of sugar in the country.

Leopards have experienced atleast two incidences of hooliganism following draws the team has registered in their opening matches of the season.

On February 24, fans yanked off chairs from Kasarani after the team drew 1-1 with Chemelil Sugar. Then on March 1, fans besieged coach Olaba protesting a barren draw against Sony Sugar.

The official also said they are satisfied with coach Tom Olaba's performance and rubbished calls by a section of fans for former coach Jan Koops to be returned to the club.

"Olaba has instilled some great discipline in the playing unit and we are so far satisfied by the great work he has done. Those who want Koops to come should know that we will not pay his salary as sponsors," said the official.
