More Than 20 Teams Register For Koth Biro Tournament


With only a week to the first match of the 44th edition of the annual Koth Biro Tournament, more than 20 teams have so far beat the registration deadline and confirmed their participation in the tournament.

This year’s edition aimed at registering only 32 teams but according to one of the organizers, Charles Opiyo, they are set to work with the teams that have registered so far since they seem promising and ready to battle it out.

According to him they will work perfectly well with the teams present instead of having a bigger lot and no competition at all.

“So far we’re good although we’ve not met the expectation of 32 teams but so far so good. We had discussions with some of the areas like Ziwani and Shauri Moyoand decided on the number of teams to work with and saw it fit to just work with the number we have instead of producing many teams that will bring no competition,” Charles tells Ghetto Radio News.

The expectations for the 2022 edition are high as Charles mentions that they hope the tournament will stand out from the previous seasons as they have noted on the areas to make improvements.

“Expectations are high this season. On our side we have targets and we want this edition to stand out from the previous ones since we’ll be using performances from the past three seasons to gauge our progress. Lazima this year owe better, tuko sure itakuwa better.” He says.

The opening match is set for Saturday 19th November followed by the next one on 20th. Matches are set to resume on 3rd December after a week’s break.

Koth Biro derived from the Luo dialect means rain is coming and since the short rains are already here, we can confidently say that all the conditions for the tournament are already met and it’s all systems go.
