The Koth Biro tournament started as matches between young schoolboys playing for different clubs in Ziwani Estate, Nairobi before later it went big and is held annually mostly during the short rains period in December.
Since its inception, the Koth Biro tournament was first played officially in July-August 2019. It is done annually with different football stars coming together to compete and show their prowess.
The tournament provides an opportunity for young people to explore their talents which are later nurtured and molded to be competitive on international grounds.
Ultimately, the tournament is said to be a way of kicking boredom among other vices in society by keeping the young people busy and away from crime.
