The national women soccer team and Tanzania artists combine are expected to clash in the charity tie to be played at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam tomorrow.

The match has been organized with two fold objectives, one to raise fund for the women team and the other a two percent of the proceeds would be channeled to the family of the late movie star Steven Kanumba.

The women team is in preparations for the Africa Women Championship final qualifier match against Ethiopia early next month.

The Tanzania team bids to win their second appearance in the continental championship after making their debut show during the seventh edition hosted by South Africa in 2010.

The continental biennial tourney will be hosted by Equatorial Guinea later in November.

Entrance fees for the match has been set at 10,000/-, 5,000/- and 2,000/- for the VIP A, B and C, respectively.

The kick of time is 16:00 hours.

Twiga Stars met their Ethiopia counterparts in the first leg to be played in Addis Ababa on May 26 before the return leg tie two weeks later at home.

Stars advanced to the final qualifier round after breezing past Namibia by 7-2 goals winning the return leg overwhelmingly by 5-2 goals.

The Twiga Stars team is conducting a fund raising exercise that was launched by the deputy ministry for Information, Youth, Culture and Sports, Fenella Mukangara, last month.
