Reviving American Football in Kenya

16 September 2013, 14:28 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - American Football has not risen to high standards since its inception in Kenya in 1997.

The founders recruited rugby players whom they thought would best play the game but this was not the case.

“The rugby players we recruited went back to play rugby leaving us without a team, but since 2007, we have been recruiting players specifically for American Football and not rugby,” says University of Nairobi American Football team coach John Kamau.

Since then, Kamau says they have been able to participate in regional tournaments in Uganda and Tanzania with the help of American coach Ken Parker, who is based in Kenya.

According to Kamau, their plan to participate in an international tournament early this year in Dubai was futile due to lack of funding.

“We are looking for sponsors who can help us get the helmets, shoulder pads uniforms and boots to enable us recruit players in other institutions and even in some villages across the country,” Kamau said.

“The equipment roughly costs KES 50,000 per set. The ones we are currently using were donated to us by well wishers through Tom Kelly, who is our main sponsor in Kenya.

Plans are underway to register the East African American Football Federation (EAAFF) that will train players, coaches, referees and other officials to take the game to the next level in East Africa.
