Forgotten Champs

This is an innovative way for social and economic empowerment of youth in the 47 Kenyan counties meant to awaken the forgotten giants in sports.

My Leader Kenya (MLK) Arts, Sports & Culture Department wishes to invite members & the public to their program “Forgotten Champions" Tournament.

The Forgotten Champions Tournament is both a leadership and sporting exchange programme for Youth. It aims at rekindling buried and abandoned talents in sporting activities.

It is also a community social effort for promoting the rights and well being of youth in the 47 counties as well as their untold stories.

This unique initiative gives a chance to those who were champions but now forgotten e.g. Primary, Secondary, University or College but it’s been long since you got to the pitch (unfit).

In this tournament we will have a each county have a team, forward to the Region then each region will join for the one day Soccer (Men/Women) league in Nairobi.
