Kenya’s youthful football tournament Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom has partnered with LaLiga, the Spains top flight football league to boost the tournament that enters its second edition in 2018.
The partnership involves a scouting program that will see certified LaLiga coaches travel to Kenya to search for talented players, both boys and girls, who will make up an all-star team.
Just like the first season the tournament will target talented male and female youth aged between 16 and 20 with an aim of developing grassroots football, scouting for talent and propelling gifted players to the national limelight.
Over 1,500 teams took part in the first season of the tournament whose final was held at the Bukhungu stadium in Kakamega.
The launch of the second season was marked with friendly matches involving reigning Champions, Kapenguria Heroes and Plateau Queens who played Nairobi region champions Gor Mahia Youth FC and Beijing Raiders.
Registration for tournament will close on 30th September with group games being played countrywide from October 2018.
Registration forms are available via the Website (http://chapadimba.safaricom.co.ke/) and from all Safaricom shops and local FKF offices.
The top regional teams will qualify for the national finals where the winners in both the men and women categories will walk away with Sh1 Million
