Vodacom Premier League defending champions Young Africans (Yanga) will be all out to close the gap with leaders Simba SC when they face Ruvu JKT under floodlights at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam today evening.
Yanga are three points behind Simba who are at the top of the table with 31 points after 14 matches each and any results without a win for the Jangwani boys will be a setback in their efforts to defend the title.
The match will start at 06:00pm to enable the Namibia ladies football team (the Brave Gladiators) to train at the National Stadium ahead of their African Women Championship (AWC) preliminary round tie against the hosts Twiga Stars which will be held tomorrow.
According to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) rules, visiting teams must be given an opportunity to train on the pitch that will be used for the match one day before.
Meanwhile, another Premier League involving Moro United and Azam, which was scheduled to be held tomorrow at Chamazi Stadium, has been pushed back to Monday because of the AWC qualifier.
However, according to the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) media officer, Boniface Wambura, the changes will not affect other matches of the 15th round.
Other matches to be held today are Villa Squad vs Toto African at Chamazi Stadium and Ruvu Shooting against Kagera Sugar at Mlandizi Stadium.
Mtibwa Sugar will host Coastal Union at Manungu in Morogoro tomorrow while African Lyon will entertain Polisi Dodoma at Chamazi Stadium and Simba will host JKT Oljoro at the National Stadium on February 1.
Entry fees at the National Stadium will be 3,000/- for the blue and green stands, 5,000/- for orange stands, 10,000/- for VIP C and B stands, and 15,000/- for VIP A stands.
Fees for Chamazi Stadium will be 3,000/- for round stand and 10,000/- for main stand.
