This edition of Safaricom Chapa Dimba featured 286 teams from the six counties in the North Eastern region, including Mandera, Garissa, and Wajir.

The tournament aims to provide a platform for scouts and coaches to discover new talent, establish feeder systems for Kenyan football leagues, and train 250 coaches. Targeting footballers aged between 16 and 20, the tournament is an important initiative for youth development in Kenyan football.

With the North Eastern Region completed, the focus now shifts to Nairobi, where eight teams are set to compete for the regional title in the upcoming Safaricom Chapa Dimba tournament.
