Congratulations Simba Sports Club, Tanzania Football (Vodacom Premier League) Champions 2011/2012…!!!!

Tanzanian giants Simba have claimed the national title, after being forced to wait 10 days to celebrate.

They rounded off their campaign with a 5-0 drubbing of last year’s title holders Young Africans.

Their victory was actually assured on Friday after their nearest rivals were beaten, putting Simba out of reach.

That match, between Azam and Mtibwa Sugar, was a replay, after a previous game was controversially abandoned, postponing Simba’s success.

Azam – who have a wealthy businessman, Salim Bhakresa, behind them, nonetheless take second place and will relish their chance of making maiden appearance in continental competitions.

Simba’s win over Young Africans was the biggest score-line in any match between the two sides for more than 30 years, and confirms Simba’s resurgence.

They are on the verge of reaching the knock-out round of the Confederation Cup after winning the first leg of their tie against Al Ahly Shandy 3-0 a week ago.

The team will now represent Tanzania in next year’s Champions League as well as in the East and Central Africa Club championship, while Azam will play in the Confederation Cup.

Fans of Simba celebrated through the streets of Dar es Salaam as they finally made sure of the winning the title.

For the last 20 years I have been working as a football pundit. This experience has provided me with a very useful insight into football and the opportunity to carry out extensive research into the game including its players, the stadiums, the rules and tactics and I have also been grateful to meet a wide range of people connected to football in the UK, Tanzania, Germany .....
