Speaking during the launch earlier this year, Andrew Galeta who is the Executive Director of AYCT said despite the difficulty to find money for sponsorship Andiamo is “committed to promoting football at grassroots level regardless of the sacrifice which is being made.”

“We would like to unearth rural talent at the same time trying to promote football in the district,” said Galeta.

This year the league, was being played in a league basis in eight zones, which spread across the district to accommodate more teams from rural areas.

The district champion will get K200 000 and a trophy, runners up will receive K150 000 while teams on third and fourth place will get K70 000 and K50 000 respectively. The most disciplined team will receive K20 000, top goal scorer and player of the tournament will receive K10 000 each.

There are also awards for the top four teams that will accumulate more points in the qualifying round at the zonal level will receive K20 000, K10 000, K7 000 and K5 000 respectively. The first two teams will secure the top 16 round of qualifiers.
