The English Premier League, the most watched football league in the world, came to a dramatic end last weekend. With that comes, for some like me, the most dormant four months of the year and so got me wondering about what one does during the European off-season.

In my opinion, this is the perfect time to create more attention to the local league which is still ongoing. Apart from the local derby i.e. Gor Mahia vs AFC Leopards not much attention, on a larger scale, is given to our local league. More so due to the competition in audience brought about by the European leagues. Most people have the mindset that the local league is not as exciting as the European leagues and so this would be a perfect time to create more audience for the local league. I think most of the focus should be taken away from the big local teams and set on the other teams to kind of create a local following. The different teams are based in different communities and it would be good to create a show that profiles each team in the context of the communities they represent and what their influence is.

Now that my Saturdays are not spent waiting for the game at 2pm I have a whole weekend afternoon to spare. I don’t think I am alone in this predicament and believe there is a whole audience out there that would be drawn to football related content. I spend quite a sum of time checking football rumors online so why not have a show that profiles local players and talks about the transfer madness that is set to hit the footballing world come June. Who knows we could attract a few scouts from European teams.

It is not all gloom and doom though with the Confederations cup coming up soon 🙂 and a few international friendlies here and there.
