AFC Leopards released their 60th-anniversary celebrations report, providing details on key activities, funds raised, expenditures, and recommendations.

Other companies and individuals also contributed to raising the total amount. The Resource Mobilization sub-committee was credited with managing to raise the funds and the club expressed gratitude to everyone who contributed to the anniversary activities. In the report, it was disclosed that the FKF Premier League paid their arch-rivals Gor Mahia Ksh1 million for a friendly match at Nyayo Stadium, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

The same amount was paid to Shabana FC for a friendly match with AFC Leopards that also ended in a 1-1 draw. The report did not mention any payment to A.E Ramassa from Barcelona, Spain, which also played against AFC Leopards.
