ASFC: It’s Singida Stars vs Mbeya City today 

THE Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) quarterfinals kick-off with a solo fixture  at Liti Stadium where Singida Big Stars welcome Mbeya City in Singida today.

A winning side becomes the first team to venture into the semifinals of the prestigious contest played in a knockout format and so far, all eight qualified teams parade in the Premier League.

To reach this stage, the Singida based giants ousted JKT Tanzania 1-0 while Mbeya City hammered Kagera Sugar 1-0.

The action continues tomorrow when Azam entertain Mtibwa Sugar at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam in another tough duel to both teams.

Then on Friday, Simba will take on Ihefu at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam and a day later, the defending champions Young Africans play against Geita Gold at Azam Complex in the city.

The last-16 ASFC campaign has witnessed 20 goals being netted in various venues across the country as Simba and Yanga emerged the heavy winners in the process.

Another side which stamped a big win was Geita Gold who outsmarted Green Warriors 3-1 at Nyankumbu Stadium in Geita as they too showcase massive performance aiming at lifting the title.

On the other hand, Ihefu and Azam cherished 2-0 victories apiece against Pan African and Mapinduzi while narrow wins were produced by Singida Big Stars (1-0) against JKT Tanzania, Mbeya City (1-0) versus Kagera Sugar and Mtibwa Sugar (1-0) over KMC.
