Chapa Dimba third edition to kickoff in North Eastern
North Eastern is set to host the first regional competition for the third season of Chapa Dimba na Safaricom, with the final slated for November 23-24 at the Garissa University.
Berlin FC will be out to defend their title and will face off with Al Ansar from Wajir, Admiral from Mandera East, and Al Mumtaz from Modogashe.
“This year, we will start with Garissa unlike the two previous editions where we started with Narok and Kakamega Counties. This decision was made after we realised the huge impact the tournament has had on the region going by the increase in the number of teams that participated in the grassroots tourneys.
“I would like to urge the people of North Eastern to come in large numbers and support their favourite teams,” said Patrick Korir, Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Coordinator.
The winning team will walk away with Sh. 200,000 and an opportunity to compete at the national finals set for June 2020 in Mombasa. After the North Eastern region, Mombasa will host Coast regional finals on December 7-8.
The national winners in both men and women categories will take home Sh. 1,000,000.
