Kafue Celtics Football Club
The Football Club is committed to offering its athletes a long term development plan and systematic player pathways. Up until now finding suitable pathways has proved to be a difficult task as professional clubs locally and internationally are notoriously suspicious of anyone that is outside of there network of coaches and scouts.
Fredrick Kanoute has been supporting Kafue Celtic as a sports consultant, providing his expertise to promote youth development and mentoring for footballers of Kafue Celtic.
Until now 20 of our past athletes have been accepted on to the academies of overseas professional clubs. Now that we have a systematic pathway we expect the numbers to explode.
It is a good time to be a KAFUE CELTIC athlete!
