New media received inaugural attention at the 2011
Footballer of the Year Awards [FOYA], under the Chairman’s award category.
In the event, held on Wednesday 7 December at the Nairobi Safari Club, Futaa.com came out on top, beating Kenyan Star which
finished third and Michezo Afrika
which was second.
This is the first time the award has gone to an online site and according to the Kenyan Premier League Chairman Juma Mwanyikai, futaa.com was feted for the exemplary work done towards raising the football standards in the country.
Futaa.com covers Kenyan football at all levels of the divide yet still giving regional and foreign leagues a sizeable coverage.
