Season 1 winners Beijing Raiders reclaimed their lost glory from defending champions Acakoro Ladies to become season 3 Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Nairobi Region champions.

Starehe’s Beijing Raiders thumped Acakoro Ladies FC from Kasarani 6-0 with goals from Salome Drailer in the 40th, 59th, 72nd and 84th minute and Facila Adhiambo in the 45th and 76th minute.

In the boys’ final, Dagoretti Mixed prevailed 4-3 against Harakati Sportiff in post-match penalties after playing to a barren draw in regulation time.

Both Beijing Raiders and Dagoretti Mixed won Sh200,000 and will now represent Nairobi Region in the national finals set for June 2020 at Bomu Stadium, Mombasa. Acakoro Ladies and Harakati Sportiff did not walk away empty handed as they both pocketed Sh100,000, with a host of individual prizes won by the best performing players.

 The 2 teams join Tumaini School from Makueni, Isiolo Starlets from Isiolo, North Eastern’s Berlin FC from Garissa, Coast region’s Yanga FC from Malindi, Kwale Ladies, Falling Waters from Laikipia and Ulinzi Youth from Nanyuki.
