Football is the most popular sport in Kenya, followed by athletics and volleyball. Kenyan football's greatest success was the triumph in the Castle Cup in 2002. This four-nation tournament was first held in Kenya in 2000.
The national team has reached the finals of the African Cup of Nations on five occasions.
The Kenyan FA also grabbed the headlines with victories at the CECAFA Youth Tournament in 2000 and by organising a course held as part of the FIFA Futuro development programme in 1998, with attendees from various Eastern and Central African national associations.
Joe Kadenge and Jonathan Niva are the two most famous players to have emerged from Kenya.
