Tanzania League permits ten foreign based footballers

AZAM FC has lauded the government for upholding recommendations made by stakeholders to enable domestic clubs to sign a maximum number of ten foreign based players.
According to Information, Culture and Sports Minister Mwakyembe, 82.8 per cent of the opinions gathered suggested that the number of foreign based players to be signed by a domestic club should remain unchanged at ten.
He added that eight per cent of the collected opinions proposed that there should not be limit to sign foreign players provided the concerned clubs have financial muscles to take care of them.
Reacting to this was Azam FC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdulkarim Amin ‘Popat’ who said the government decision to allow clubs to sign ten foreign players are good news for them.
“It is a great decision, otherwise, the clubs to have been affected if the government chose to trim the number could be us (Azam), Simba and Young Africans because we have more foreign based players. “We have received the decision wholeheartedly and we thank the government for listening to opinions made by football fans in the country,” he said.
He added that in their squad, currently, only two places for foreign based players are available to complete the maximum of required ten players while insisting that they are in the final stages talking with the remaining ones.
About domestic signing, Popat said there is only one place remaining for a Tanzanian and that it will be sealed as quickly as possible.
According to him, the squad is already on the ground preparing for the next season, while revealing that each player, upon being signed, is going straight to camp.
