EAC now boasts 1300 participants from Zambia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda.

The participants are exposed to a unique blend of football and seminars encompassing issues like sports medicine, media training, leadership training, HIV aids awareness, conflict resolution, refereeing, coaching and cultural networking.

The EAC is annually held in the picturesque town of Moshi, under the brooding glaciers of the magnificent Kilimanjaro – during the last ten days of June. This year’s official dates are from June 22 – 27.

The event hosts 4 categories – Under 16 girls and boys, and Under 13 girls and boys. One of the main objectives of the EAC is also to foster the development of girls participation in their respective communities. Seminars and athletic activities therefore put a major emphasis on improving the participation of girls.

Partners in the EAC are formally Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA), Kristen Idretts kontakt(KRIK), Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA), and Christian Sports Contact (CHRISC). Other supporting partners are BBC, Right to Play, Norway Cup, Norges Idrettsforbund, Fredskorpset, Statoil, Ultimate Security Tanzania, Tanzania Football Federation, Tanzania National Sports Council, and NORAD.

We are looking for East African journalists to cover the tournament and attend training sessions at the event – if you are interested, please click here or contact. We aren’t looking for sports journalists, but you must have an interest in covering development issues and reporting sports for development.
