TANZANIA envoys in Confederation Cup Simba SC will meet Mtibwa Sugar in a friendly encounter on Saturday evening at the Azam’s Chamazi Stadium in Dar es Salaam.
Simba SC Information Officer, Ezekiel Kamwaga said on Thursday that the match will be the last test for his club this year before they travel to Zanzibar for Mapinduzi Cup starting on Monday.
The team will depart for Zanzibar on Sunday. Kamwaga said that the game against Mtibwa will be the first test for Serbian Coach Milovan Cirkovic, who has rejoined the team’s technical bench recently.
Cirkovic promised a rare treat and an ideal New Year gift for the fans, saying further that the game will be an avenue where he will gauge how the players have responded to his training. Fans will have to part with 5,000/- for VIP and 2,000/- to get the flavor.
Simba are the defending champions of Mapinduzi Cup and already coach Milovan said he will use the tournament to spot weakness before the kick off of the Premier League’s final round next month.
The tournament, he said, would also help his team step up preparations for the Confederation Cup preliminary round matches against SC Kiyovu of Rwanda in February.

The youngsters include Hassan Khatibu, Jonas Mkude, Abdallah Seseme, Edward Christopher, Frank Sekule and Ramadhani Singano. All foreign players, namely Felix Sunzu, Gervais Kago, Derrick Walulya, Emmanuel Okwi and Patrick Mafisango are all included.
