    THE African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers match between Taifa Stars and Central Africa Republic (CAR) played last Saturday at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam raised 110m/-.
    Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) Information Officer, Boniface Wambura told reporters on Tuesday that the sum was earned out of 21,117 spectators who showed up to witness the encounter in which the home side won 2-1.

    Wambura said one per cent of the revenue collected, which is 1.1m/- will be presented to Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner's Office being the federation's contribution towards Gongolamboto bomb blasts victims.
    In another development, TFF said the Under-23 national soccer team, 'Vijana Stars' returned home on Tuesday afternoon from Cameroon, where they played the hosts in the Olympics qualifiers.
    Wambura said the players have been given a day off before resuming residential training ahead of the return leg encounter on April 9 at the National Stadium.
    Vijana Stars lost 1-2 in the opening game and they need a win of at least one goal to book their ticket to the next round.
    said there will be no examination for soccer agents tomorrow as per world soccer governing body, FIFA schedule since no local agent has applied for the examination.

    Wambura also announced the national league that pits regional champions will kick off in June and the teams have been grouped into four with regions of Coast, Ruvuma, Kigoma and Singida are set to host each group.
    Group A entails teams from hosts Coast, Dar es Salaam, Morogoro, Tanga, Lindi and Mtwara - while Ruvuma contestants are Mbeya, Iringa and Rukwa.
    Kigoma includes teams from Tabora, Kagera, Kigoma, Shinyanga, Mara and Mwanza, while Singada will see teams from Arusha, Manyara, Singida, Kilimanjaro, Dodoma and Shinyanga battling it out.
