NAIROBI, Kenya- Nairobi’s renowned youth football powerhouse, Buruburu Soccer Academy (BSA), is gearing up for fierce competition as they prepare to participate in the third edition of the Inua Talanta Championship at the Mombasa Sports Club this December.

Fresh from their impressive performance at the Rausha Kipaji football tournament in Nakuru back in August, BSA is eager to make its mark once again on the coastal city’s football scene during the tournament scheduled from December 9th to 11th, 2023.

Under the guidance of Director Dan Karani, the Eastlands-based academy has fielded teams in the Under 7, Under 9, Under 11, and 13 categories. The young athletes are brimming with confidence following their exposure to competitive play at the Nakuru event, where their skills were put to the test.
