The 2018/2019 edition of the Chapa Dimba na Safaricom Youth Tournament kicks off on Saturday, October 28, 2018, with matches lined up in Kakamega and Vihiga, with Busia and Butere Mumias set to follow suit next weekend.

This season involves a partnership between tournament sponsors Safaricom and Spain’s top football league, La Liga, which will see Spanish 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 edition of the tournament whose final was held at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.

Kapenguria Heroes emerged champions after a 3-0 win in post-match penalties over Gor Mahia Youth.

The top regional teams will qualify for the national finals where the winners in both the men and women categories will walk away with KES 1 Million.
