Key Focus

To work closely with member clubs, partners and the international Federation of American football to Promote, develop and regulate American football in Kenya.


The Kenya Federation of American Football (KFAF) is a Non-Profit sport organization registered under the Ministry of Sports and Culture to govern, regulate, and develop American Football in Kenya. The birth and genesis of American Football dates to 2012, with the piloting starting at the University of Nairobi. There has been tremendous growth for the last six years now boasting of three university teams (UON, JKUAT &USIU) and, two community teams (Umoja chiefs & Samburu Cowboys) that compete in flag football and 8-man Tackle leagues.

The university of Nairobi participated in the Inaugural East Africa Championship held in Uganda 2012 finishing second overall. We also conducted demonstration game during the FASU game 2014 at the University of Nairobi(UON vs Umojachiefs). Best athletes scouted, have had an opportunity to receive training in the USA leading to academic scholarships in 2016 and 2018.  February 22-24, 2019 KFAF coaches and federation officials were in Orlando, Florida USA for football conference and training. The sport offers a great opportunity for student athletes, coaches and learning institutions. I, therefore, welcome your institution to join us in developing American football in Kenya.
