My name is Brian Wesaala. I am an Information Technology professional, trained accountant and football enthusiast – aspiring football business professional. I am also pursuing a master’s degree in Technology Management with a focus on innovation and project management.
Growing up I have always had a passion for sports and athletics. I have been actively involved in football since my childhood, representing my school both at primary and high school level. From 2002 to 2014 I played in competitive amateur leagues, mainly in Kenya for Strathmore University Football Club and later for US Carouge in Geneva, Switzerland.
I have since ‘retired’ from competitive football to pursue other interests. I currently play for the UN Football Club in Geneva where I am employed. I also serve as the club vice-president. Even though I never made it to the professional ranks, which was my dream, I always viewed football as an avenue for development be it at a personal or societal level. Perhaps this was motivated by my formal education, something I explore in this blog. From my experiences in Kenya and Switzerland, I strongly believe that sports, if well-managed, can be a great avenue for social and economic development of a population
I am a great supporter of AFC Leopards SC and Arsenal Football Club.
