The Ace Africa-Future Stars Academy 2016 Football League is a 10-week league involving 20 teams from 13 underprivileged primary schools in Arusha District. The project aims to bring quality football training and the opportunity for sporting excellence to some of the poorest and most disadvantaged children in Tanzania.
When will the League occur?
The 2016 League will be broken into 2 time periods in Arusha in order to accommodate the school schedule and upcoming rainy season. Game play is scheduled to begin in Arusha the week of 8 February and continue until the week of 7 March. The league will then continue the week of 18 July for 5 additional weeks of games, with the final event to take place the week of 21 August.
Which Arusha schools will participate in the League?
The Arusha league will involve 20 teams from 13 underprivileged primary schools.
How were the schools chosen?
Ace Africa, the main league sponsor, chose the participating schools, in consultation with Future Stars Academy, based on multiple criteria and factors. The main factor was that the primary school must have an established Ace Africa Child-to-Child Club, of which Ace has 40 such clubs in the Arusha area. An additional important factor was the logistical challenge in reaching the school, especially in rainy conditions. While Ace Africa would, of course, love to include more schools in the league, financial constraints are limiting the 2016 league to 10 teams. However, this is a substantial increase over the 6 schools participating in the last such league in 2014.
