Geita Gold have departed this morning for Sudan ahead of their first leg preliminary round CAF Confederation Cup (CAF CC) match versus Hilal Alsahil on Sunday.
Together with Azam, the two sides are the country’s envoys in the confederation cup but the latter will begin their assignments in the second preliminary round.
However, the Geita based outfits are featuring in the competition for the first time in the club’s history but are hopeful to achieve remarkable success and cruise into the second phase.
In his remarks, Head Coach Felix Minziro says they are well prepared for the important away match as they search for the first win in international duels.
He however expressed his concern over the jam packed NBC Premier League schedule since after their Hilal Alsahil match on Sunday, they will be compelled to host Singida Big Stars in a league match on Wednesday before welcoming the Sudan side for the reverse CAF CC duel.
“We request the Tanzania Premier League Board ‘TPLB) to reschedule our league fixture against Singida Big Stars because by then, my players will be having fatigue after a long trip from Sudan,” said him.
Geita Gold won the privilege to parade in the confederation cup after finishing on third place last season in the top flight league.
