Football Club Talanta, also known as FC Talanta, is a professional football club based in Liasion House, State House Avenue, Nairobi, Kenya, formed in July 2012. FC Talanta currently compete in the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL), the top tier of football in Kenya.
The club’s corporate vision is to evolve into a model of successful, transparent and mass movement of Kenyan youth who believe in themselves and can take the country to the next level in soccer. As part of FC Talanta’s commitment in giving back to the community, the National Youth Talent Academy (NYTA) currently an incubator program under the Kenya Academy of Sports was formed.
Talanta has a unique model in Kenya as the players constituting its teams must be graduates or former graduates of NYTA. Every year there is a selection all around Kenya to select the best 25–30 players and integrate them in the current team that will conserve only its best elements. For six months, the players selected during NYTA trials are trained and developed in order to fit directly in the first team for the beginning of the following league season.
