Yanga dedicate game vs Polisi to Dar fans

YOUNG Africans have declared that they will use their next Premier League match against Polisi Tanzania as a reward to their Dar es Salaam fans as it will be their last home match of the campaign.

A guard of honour is set to be presented by Polisi Tanzania side in acknowledging the new champions before the match at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in the city tomorrow.

Yanga have missed such an honour for four seasons, hence it will be a memorable experience for them and they have already said entry charges will be simplified to let more supporters attend the occasion.

"It will be the last game for Yanga at Benjamin Mkapa venue this season. We want to use the game to thank our fans living in Dar es Salaam, and thereafter, the team will not play any match in the city until next season.

"It will therefore be a special game to thank the Yanga family and we are going to have a guard of honour after missing the championship for a long time and we have been told to lower down entry charges," he said.

After facing Polisi Tanzania, Yanga will travel to Mbeya to play Mbeya City at Sokoine Stadium on Sunday before making another trip to Arusha where they will host Mtibwa Sugar at Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium in the last match of this season.

Initially, their Mtibwa Sugar's game was set at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium but they have shifted it to Arusha at a pitch where they will also play their Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) final against Coastal Union on July 2nd.

However, Yanga are now eyeing to finish the season unbeaten and they have three matches to claim that status if they excel to win all of them.

This season has been one of the best for the Jangwani street giants no wonder they have managed to win the Premier League championship and are on the verge to bag the ASFC title. Recently, Yanga announced that they will have a pre-season tour outside the country's in order to provide healthy preparations for the squad ahead of the coming season.

This was revealed by the club's Vice Chairman of Registration Committee Hersi Said who pointed out that they have already started planning for next season by putting in place good strategies.

"The current season is going to end on June 29th before playing the Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) finals on July 2nd but when you look at the schedule, between 12th to 14th August, preliminary round matches of CAF Champions League will be played.

"So, if you look closely, we will have four to five weeks available after this season and before the commencement of the next season. In such a scenario, players need to rest and we shall have ten to fifteen days for them to recuperate.

"Then on July 17th, players should regroup to begin pre-season campaign which will consume almost three weeks outside the country's and after that, we will have to return for Wiki ya Mwananchi event to be held on August 6th.

"After that, then the following week, Champions League matches will begin and we expect our first game to be played either at home or away, so you can see that time is very limited," he said.
