"For this reason, we have made a firm commitment to support this year’s Safaricom Sevens as a responsible corporate citizen.
CMC Motors has taken up bronze sponsorship for the tournament to the tune of Ksh 1.3 million. Ksh 1 million will go directly to the Safaricom Sevens kitty. Ksh300,000 will go to meeting the costs of transporting the teams."

Kenya Rugby Union Chairman Mwangi Muthee noted the longstanding association between CMC and rugby, observing that they had through CMC Engineering in previous years supported fabrication of scrum machines.
