Brian Wesaala 2017My name is Brian Wesaala. I am an Information Technology professional, trained accountant and football enthusiast. 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 the 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 also played for the UN Football Club in Geneva where I was employed. and doubled up as the club’s vice-president. 

I have since ‘retired’ from competitive football to pursue other interests. 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 the social and economic development of a population. 

It is with this in mind that I set The Football Foundation for Africa, an international social enterprise to help build a sustainable business model for the African football industry. I am keen to see the sport improve the livelihoods of youths in Africa.

I am a great supporter of AFC Leopards SC and Arsenal Football Club.
