Safaricom supports Football Kenya Federation youth tie-up with La Liga

Wednesday 14 August 2019 | 10:22 CET | News

Safaricom has announced an extended partnership with LaLiga and the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) for the third season of the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom youth tournament. This year’s tournament will have coaching clinics in partnership with LaLiga in order to upskill local football coaches as well. Registration for the tournament will close on 06 September, after which grassroots games will kick off.

Registration forms are available via the tournament's website, Safaricom shops and FKF offices countrywide. La Liga and FKF scouts will select sixteen girls and sixteen boys to form an all-star team who will attend a ten-day training session in Spain, during which they will play friendly matches against top LaLiga youth sides.

The top regional teams will walk away with KES 200,000, and qualify for the national finals where the winning teams will each get KES 1 million. The best players at regional and national levels will also receive various cash prizes.

The tournament was launched in 2017 with the aim of giving young people aged 16-20 a showcase for their talent.
