“We have been training hard in preparation for this tournament rectifying the past mistakes we made in the National Finals and this time we promise to put up a better performance to enable us come home with the main cup. I have also been crowned the most valuable player and I would like to thank my coach and my team as it was a collective effort that earned me this title,” said Abdalla Marro, Top Scorer, Berlin FC player.

The winning team walked away with KES 200,000 in cash and will represent the region at the national finals set for June 2020 at Bomu Stadium, Mombasa. The runners-up, Al Ansar did not walk away empty handed as they received KES 100,000 with players taking home a host of individual prizes.

The tournament now moves to Mombasa, where the Coast regional finals will be held on 7th and 8th December at Bomu Stadium. The Coast regional finals will also be accompanied by coaching clinics by La Liga coaches where they will be trained on how to build their skills to international standards.

Chapa Dimba na Safaricom aims to develop grassroots football and providing a platform where gifted players will have an opportunity to be scouted and play for the National team as well as the top tier local and international teams.

Once all regional finals are played, an all-Star team comprising of 16 girls and 16 boys will be selected to attend a 10-day training camp in Spain. The teams will play friendly matches against top Spanish La Liga Football Academies after which the players will rejoin their teams for the National finals where KES 1 M is at stake for the winner.
