The ongoing Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom National Youth Tournament heads to Nanyuki for the Central Regional Finals on the18th and 19th January at Nanyuki Stadium.

New champions will be crowned in the boys’ category after last season’s winners Euronuts from Kiambu were edged out of the tournament at the group stage.

Barcelona FC from Laikipia, who has since rebranded themselves to Falling Waters, will look to defend their title in the girls’ category after successfully securing a slot for the regional finals.

“We are happy to be back to discover and unearth raw talent through Chapa Dimba na Safaricom, kicking off the year in Nanyuki for the Central regional finals. I urge the fans to turn up in large numbers to be part of the two-day event,” said Naaman Amboka, Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Central Region Coordinator.

A total of 8 teams qualified for the regional finals with four boys’ teams; Irigiro FC from Maragua, Jysa from Juja, Ulinzi youth from Nanyuki and Kiamutugu boys from Kirinyaga. Limuru Starlets, Achievers Queens from Ruiru, Falling Waters from Nyahururu and Nyer’s Karima queens make up the girls’ teams.

Winners will walk away with a cash prize of KES 200,000 and an opportunity to represent the Central Region in the national finals. The runners-up will also receive KES 100,000 each with a host of individual prizes to be won.

The players will also attend life skills and mentorship sessions where they will be equipped with the knowledge on how to live a life beyond the pitch.

Already, North Eastern’s Berlin FC from Garissa and Coast region’s Yanga FC from Malindi and Kwale Ladies have booked their spots for the national finals where KES 1,000,000 is up for grabs.

This season, two coaching and scouting clinics conducted by certified La Liga coaches are featuring in the tournament. The first one was held in Mombasa and the next clinic is set for 22nd -23rd  February in Nairobi.

An all-Star team comprising of 16 girls and 16 boys will at the end of the regional finals be selected to attend a 10-day training camp in Spain during which they will play friendlies against top Spanish La Liga football academies.
