UFL FA Cup

Kaya FC’s men’s team fell short of winning the FA Cup. Despite losing to Global, 3–1, in the final, the tournament was a huge success for our Youth Academy, with no less than 7 teenagers playing in the competition in wins vs Pachanga (4–1 and 4–1) and Loyola (4–3 and 3–1).

The breakout tournament garnered a lot of attention, and Rappler wrote a fantastic piece on the boys:

Credit goes to the Academy coaches for all their work over the years, and also to the boys for stepping up to the pro level. Kaya FC showed their dedication by promoting their youth players to the first team and we hope to see more of our academy players graduate to the first team ranks in the near future.

We will update you later this week with developments regarding the field so please keep updated with your email. Other than that, have a great week and we will see you out on the field.

Una Kaya!
