Laikipia-  After two successful runs, the much anticipated Samuel Eto'o Laikipia Unity Cup (LUC), organised by the Zeitz Foundation, Laikipia Wildlife Forum and BATUK, returns for its third edition scheduled for 7 - 10 August 2014, at Endana Secondary school grounds in Laikipia County.

This year's LUC tournament will see 20 teams battle it out in a 4-day event for the cup.

The teams, 16 boys team and 4 girls teams, are drawn from 8 zones within Laikipia County with each region represented by their two top teams.
