On February 21st the community of Dennery will return to the Dennery Multipurpose Court for an exciting evening of court football. This event dubbed KED – Street Arena, is in the second consecutive year of its existence and chief organizer Kevin Emmanus believes that this event is here to stay.
Kevin Emmanus, a now 19-year old entrepreneur from the community of Dennery stated that this venture was just “an 18 year old wanting to see things happen in the community”. Emmanus further lamented that he had no idea how to execute this initiative but has a passion for football and as a young male in the community; he saw the need to engage his peers in meaningful and productive activities.
The competition is a 6-a side knockout football tournament with the Winner receiving one thousand dollars, second place receiving five hundred dollars and third place receiving two hundred and fifty dollars cash.
