A total of 20 branches will be receiving ksh 2million shillings quarterly from Football Kenya Federation following a proposal by FKF National Executive Committee (NEC) to set aside 10 percent of the sponsorship money in development of grass root football.
The proposal was adopted at the FKF Congress held on Saturday October 15 2016 at the KCA University.
While presenting a cheque of ksh 2 million to the branch officials for first quarter FKF President Nick Mwendwa announced that the federation is set to provide ksh 8 million for the 2017 season.
The money will be shared equally across 20 nationwide branches in line with their commitment to support the growth of grass root football.
“It is not a lot but we are making the first step to allow the development of football at a grass root level”.
“This will mean that we are not just supporting the growth of football at the top flight but also at the lowest level.”
Mwendwa is expecting that Kenyan football will attract more partnerships to allow the federation increase the funding of the grassroots football.
