Brewers hand over outfits to Dar rivals
As usual, the Tanzania Breweries presented Dar es Salaam-based soccer rivals Simba and Young Africans outfits yesterday, ahead of the premiership season next month
The firm’s official George Kavishe was busy during the presentation of the 64m/- worth of sports gear to officials of the two sides.
The gear included pairs of jerseys for premiership matches and training, soccer shoes, shin guards, bags and practice balls.
While Simba were represented by vice-chairman Geoffrey Nyange and manager Innocent Njovu, Yanga had their newly elected chairman Lloyd Nchunga and secretary general Lawrence Mwalusako.
Simba’s vice-chairman Nyange expressed his appreciation to the brewers for the continued support.
The same remarks were echoed by Yanga chairman Nchunga who thanked the brewers in early stages of his chairmanship.
The brewers took sponsorship responsibility since the 2008 season to support the two soccer rivals.
TBL happens to present sports kits twice in a season and the second presentation is expected to be at the beginning of the second half of the season, in January 2011.
The Mainland league kicks off on August 21 as Simba take on African Lyon in the opener while Young Africans have Police Dodoma as their opponent.
Twelve teams are featuring in the home and away league.
