Football is Kenya’s national pastime. There is a club, formal or informal, in virtually every village or slum in the country. This book is the story of football in Kenya. It traces its
development from its origins in the 1920s to the present. The game was introduced in Kenya by the British colonialists who came to build the Kenya-Uganda Railway. Its birthplace
is Mombasa, the place where the building of the line began. Kenyans soon after developed a natural affinity for the game and its popularity spread fast. The first competition was the
Gossage Cup, which first took place in 1926 between Kenya and Uganda.
