The end of the Amos Wako tournament brought a ray of hope for Busia residents with the sponsor's pledge to revive Busia United Football Club.
"My humble gift to the people of Busia County is to revive Busia United. I have offered myself to be the club founder and patron. Soccer is a very popular sport with vast talent in the area which needs to be tapped," tsponsor Amos Wako said.
Speaking at the close of the three month tournament at Busia Municipal stadium, Wako promised to challenge AFC Leopards in Western.
Those who attended the event included FKF national vice chairman Robert Asembo, national chair women's football Angeline Mwikali sand and 15 football legends.
Busia United played in the Kenya Premier League between 1985 and 1986 when it folded soon after facing relegation. Wako is vying for Busia Senator Seat.
