BUSIA Stadium will today host the launch of the Amos Wako football tournament that has attracted 182 teams in Busia County.
Six veteran soccer players will grace the launch of the largest tournament sponsored by former Attorney General and aspirant for Senator in Busia County Amos Wako.
Joe Kadenge of the Gossage Cup fame will be in the border town together with JJ Masiga, Josephat Murila, Mahmoud Abbas, George Sunguti and Ricky Solomon.
The tournament organising committee chairman, William Musumba said the tournament will include 140 teams for men and 42 for women drawn from the seven constituencies in the County.
Addressing the press in Busia Town yesterday, Musumba said the tournament is sponsored by former Attorney General and aspirant for the Senator's Seat in Busia County, Amos Wako.
He said the sponsor introduced the event to tap grass root talent and keep the youth busy instead of engaging in social evils. Musumba said the tournament will be used to identify talented players
who will be recruited to help in the revival of Busia United and Busia Simba teams which were disbanded in the late 1980s.
