OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW
In an effort to keep our commitment to maintaining originality while also improving the player experience at our tournaments, Green Sports Africa is proud to present to you the first edition of Kito Cup.
Kito Cup is our first tournament of 2018 and will replace AstroTurf Challenge. Kito, which means gem in Swahili, represents our redirected effort in finding the best talent in Kenya and providing them with as many opportunities as possible.
In attendance will be over 100 teams from across the nation in various age groups all battling for the chance to make history and be crowned the first ever Kito Cup champions. Along with competing for the love of the game, teams stand a chance to win cash from a pool of 300,000 Kenyan Shillings and the opportunity to turn their passion for football into a career.
ULTIMATE MATCH DAY EXPERIENCE
Our dream for this tournament is to create an unforgettable football experience for both players and fans. Unlike some of our previous tournaments, Kito Cup will be completely centred around the players. Expect live streaming of games, interviews, game analysis, awards and so much more.
The tournament is scheduled for the 13th and 14th of April 2018 at St. Christopher’s School in the leafy suburbs of Karen, Nairobi.
As has been for the last two tournaments, Green Sports’ team of scouts will be on hand to watch out for the best talent that is on offer. Players selected will get chances to advance their career through other Green Sports ventures i.e. trials, academy and our football club.
To make scouting easier, Green Sports has standardised all its tournaments meaning Kito Cup is a 7-a-side tournament, just like Gold Cup and Platinum Cup. Games will last 15 mins one way and 10 players are allowed per team (including 3 substitutes). Games will be played over two days; group stage games on the first day and knockout games on the second day. The winner of each category will stand to win a cash (and/or other) prize worth 50,000 Kenyan Shillings. Additionally, for the first time ever, there will be a cash (and/or other) prize worth 20,000 Kenyan Shillings awarded to the runners-up.
The age and gender categories represented at the tournament will be:
Boys: U13, U15 U18, U21 and U23
The registration fees for the event are as follows:
15,000 Per team (before 1st April) — KSHS 1,500 per player
18,000 per team (from 1st of April) — KSHS 1,800 per player
Sign up for the tournament and stand the chance not only to win, but also birth a career in professional football!
