Mtibwa Sugar request 15-point deduction review

MOROGORO: AFTER being slapped with a 15-point deduction in the NBC Under-20 Premier League, the management of Mtibwa Sugar has called on the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) to review the verdict.

The Morogoro-based club who have clinched the Under-20 championship five times in a row were penalised for allegedly failing to show up to face JKT Tanzania in a game slated at Jamhuri Stadium in Dodoma on March 19th this year.

According to a statement released by TFF over the weekend , the federation’s Youth Football Committee was convinced that the reasons submitted by Mtibwa Sugar for not showing up at the venue were baseless.

It further revealed that the punishment was made in regard to section 31.1.3(1.3.1) of the Premier League 2023 edition.

Following the penalty, Mtibwa Sugar missed the opportunity to defend the Under-20 Premier League title for sixth time in a row, as they failed to step into the quarter-finals.

Briefing the ‘Daily News’ yesterday, the club’s Information Officer, Thobias Kifaru said they have submitted a formal appeal to the committee to review the punishment.

“There was a miscommunication on the date of the match, initially, we knew that the game would be played on March 20th and we traveled to Dodoma on March 19th only to be told that the game was supposed to be played on the same day (March 19th).

“As defending champions, we are a disciplined team, we have never before deliberately gone to a match venue late and we are economically fit as such, there was no way we could have willingly failed to comply with the date of the fixture,” he said.

Kifaru added that Mtibwa Sugar has the reputation of creating potential young players who are later scrambled for by different clubs, hence slapping them with that heavy punishment would demoralise the owners who invest a lot to sharpen talents of the players.

Following the 15-point deduction, Mtibwa Sugar are now accommodating the seventh slot in Under-20 Premier League Group B with nine points and before the deduction, they were second in the group, courtesy of 23 points.
