The Kenya University League is scheduled to resume in September with promises of being bigger than before and providing more than simply rugby excitement on the field.

The competition, previously known as Kenya University Sports Federation (KUSA) and last conducted in 2018, would involve sixteen universities under the name, Kenya University Sports Federation (KUSF).

To operate the league for the next ten years, KUSF has hired Kuza Kizazi, a local talent management company, with the intention of increasing its revenue and level of competition while equipping the varsity players with the necessary life skills.

The league’s current season will take place from September 24 to November 26.

“Kuza Kizazi is looking to re-brand the competition and make it more competitive, sustainable, and thereby have more impact on the students’ professional careers,” said Kuza Kizazi founder Willy Oyosi.

“We wanted to help nurture talents in all age groups, so we thought let us first start with universities because they are adults thus easy to deal with, then trickle down to high schools and primary school,” he said.

The KUSF has already extended invitations to 16 institutions to take part in this year’s competition, which is anticipated to last for 10 consecutive weekends at various locations throughout the nation.

Since the institutions had a rugby squad that had been playing for a while, that was the basis for their invitations.

UoN, Kisii University, Technical University of Kenya, Technical University of Mombasa, Kenyatta University (KU), Strathmore University, Meru University, Egerton University, Moi University, and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology were among the 16 teams.

Others include Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Dedan Kimathi University of Technology, Kabarak University, Daystar University, and University of Eldoret. Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (Mmust) is another.
