TPLB unveils Dar Derby protocol

DAR ES SALAAM: AS the eagerly awaited Dar es Salaam Derby approaches, the Tanzania Premier League Board (TPLB) has underscored the game’s protocol at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.

Young Africans host Simba on Saturday match, with TPLB urging teams and football fans to adhere to the said protocols during the game.

Addressing the media at a conference, TPLB Communication Officer, Karim Boimanda, outlined the mandatory measures they will take, including the accreditation process for journalists and special guests.

Boimanda stated: “Special guests and journalists will receive accredited passes with their names.” During the press briefing, Boimanda emphasised the importance of maintaining ethical protocols and highlighted that accreditation aims to ensure a structured and organised environment for the event.

This will maintain the integrity and professionalism expected in such high-stakes encounters.

By establishing the protocols, TPLB aims to promote responsible conduct among all participants and stakeholders involved in the otherwise referred as KariaKoo derby.

That will uphold the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship. In another development, Ali Kamwe, the Yanga Media and Communication Officer, confirmed that all their players are healthy and ready for the Dar es Salaam Derby.

He revealed that there are no injuries, and that they are looking forward to providing their fans with an exciting match against their traditional rivals.

They previously defeated Simba 5-1 at the same venue. The match is crucial for both teams, as a victory for Yanga will extend their lead on the table to 58 points from 22 matches, while a win for Simba will help them accumulate 49 points from 21 matches.

That means that if Yanga win, they will increase their lead to seven points gap ahead of Azam, and 12 points ahead of Simba. But if Simba win, they will move ahead of Azam by three points and narrow the gap with Yanga by four points.
