The former Czech captain is part of a mission to promote sport as a social force and to foster cultural exchanges and friendship between Kenya and the Czech Republic.

“This will also enhance development between our nations and help our young people,” said Youth and Sports Affairs minister Professor Hellen Sambili on Thursday when the event was launched in her office.

“We want to develop sports particularly football and I believe its going to give an opportunity to more youth from disadvantaged backgrounds an opportunity to develop,” she added.

Ujfalusi has also played club football in Italy and Germany where he turned out for Fiorentina and Hamburg respectively.

His club finished fourth overall in last season’s Spanish La Liga.

The 31 year old has been a feature in his national side for the past nine years but was forced to call time on his international career after he was criticized for visiting a restaurant following the Czech’s Republic defeat to Slovakia to Slovakia back in April.

AMFORA will tour Nairobi and Mombasa where they will play parliamentary side Bunge FC, Mavuno FC, City Council FC and Shimo La Tewa FC.

Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA) is the main partner for AMFORA and will receive the proceeds from the football matches played.

AMFORA was founded in 1974 and has played 579 matches to date in 24 countries including Austria, Tunisia, South Africa and Cambodia.
