The branch chairman, Hillary Musundi said elaborate measures have been put in place to ensure peace prevails and participating teams to observe the Ministry of Health protocol on Covid-19.
Speaking during a live morning show on Emuria  101.3FM on Friday, Mr Musundi said the recent meeting with clubs outlined all issues pertaining to the league and the need to uphold discipline. 
He outlined short-term and long term strategies of revamping the game in the county especially among schools which are the bedrock of soccer talents.

He noted that the federation will also endeavour to look for sponsors for clubs; the chairman added that the sports bill which is being drafted will take care of gaps in the various sports disciplines.
The chairman sighted challenges the federation faced including lack of an office until the intervention of Busia Governor HE Sospeter Ojaamong to give them an office at the Busia County Stadium.
“Due to limited resources most clubs have not managed to clear their registration fees; this has forced us to allow clubs which are still in arrears  to just play,” he said.
He asked political leadership to embrace football, noting that most of them don’t take it seriously and yet talents abound in the county.
Vice chairman Michael Ikolak said teams participating in the County  League will enjoy Odi Bets sponsorship where each team will get two sets of uniform, six balls and training kits.
