The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Elite Youth League commenced at Kasarani Annex.

The league, contested by football academies in Nairobi, saw a turnout of 64 teams across U13, and U15 levels with over 1,000 players expected on the field before the league ends.

The Chair of the FKF Youth Committee Chris Amimo said youth is a key priority for the development of the game.

“Kenya’s football future depends on projects like this to spot talent at the earliest age possible so that these players can be molded into top players.”

FKF Nairobi East Secretary General Dickson Doyo said the program was crucial.

“This is where Premier League clubs are going to get their players from, this is where we are going to build the next generation of the Harambee Stars.”
