The FKF Elite Youth League is set to make a comeback on Sunday after three years of absence, says FKF National Executive Committee and Chairman of FKF Youth Committee Chris Amino.
The tournament was in the woods after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and also the FIFA ban imposed on Kenyan Football by World Football Governing Body FIFA.
Speaking during the revelation, Amino stated that the tournament was going to spearhead their plans to take youth and grassroots talents to the next level.
“The league is part of FKF’s strategy to revive grassroots football countrywide so as to identify talents from an early stage, it’s been realized that a lot of young players do not have access to participate in organized leagues until they are adults. It will also form the basis for the selection of the Kenya U15 and U17 teams as the league will be rolled throughout the country, he said.
The first edition of the tournament was back in 2017 when the nation was able to bring together a formidable U-15 national team that went on to clinch the 2019 U-15 title.
