“At the heart of the community, sports is a way of life with the vision of getting a better life. One
of the most striking things about observing the grassroot players during their training is their
enthusiasm, something that is inspired by football but not confined to it. Many of them have rarely
been supported or even encouraged in their life before, but Betika provided just that support,
giving them a sense of confidence that they channel into improving their own lives outside their
hoods. The selected 64 teams will compete for 12 weeks that’s from the end of September to
Mid December” Said Noah Yusuf known as Refigah
As FKF, we intend to continue supporting the community teams and help them reach league
levels. We also call upon other industry players and sports stakeholders to join Betika in building
Kenyan sportsmen and supporting our own. Football in Kenya is improving and the Football
Kenya Federation has always been committed to ensuring that it develops even further” Said Mr.

“Our plan is to have a 3day mentorship & training session where we will have all the coaches &
team goal keepers taken through serious mentorship program from our celebrity footballers in
conjunction with Betika. During these sessions we will be able to identify, nurture and expose
talents amongst the players, mold the team into responsible members of the community. We are
happy with the strides ‘Betika Na Community’ is making in transforming the lives of our youth.
Sports has this unique power to celebrate our common humanity. It brings people together –
allowing them to meet each other and share a common love for the game, compete on equal
terms, follow the same rules and respect differences even in competition” Said PR Manager
