AFC Leopards pocketed a cool Sh2 million, despite dropping three crucial points against Gor Mahia in the Mashemeji Derby defeat on Sunday.

Though a section of the fans left the Kasarani Stadium with frowning faces after Ingwe succumbed to a 2-1 against their domestic perennial rivals, the club is smiling all the way after cashing in big.

The derby raised Sh3,910,900 with 18,977 fans reported to have attended tie.

After deducting Sh586,635 stadia charges and Sh391,091 that went to the ticketing firm contracted to print and sell the match day tickets among other expenses totalling to Sh1,461,750, the club was left with Sh2.3 to cash.

The figure will somewhat act as a consolation to the side that is yet to pick a victory against their perennial rivals in the last five meetings.

K’Ogalo, on the other hand, will draw strength from the fact that they are sitting pretty at the summit with 52 points, 12 more than second-placed Sofapaka.
