Simba`s Kagame Cup opener against Uganda Revenue Authority that was earlier scheduled to be played on Monday at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam has been brought forward to Sunday.
The latest change of the fixture has been announced by the organizers who said the stadium that was supposed to be used by the Copa Coca-Cola final is now available for the Kagame Cup.
The Copa Coca-Cola final match will now be played at the Karume Memorial Stadium also on Sunday as the National Stadium will be free to open room for the Simba-URA clash.
Besides the Simba-URA match at the National Stadium, two other Kagame Cup encounters will be staged at the Chamazi Stadium on the outskirts of the city, Mbagala.
The first match will be between AS Vita from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ports from Djibouti that kicks off at 14:00 hours ahead of the Azam FC versus Zanzibar’s Mafunzo whose kick off is two hours later at the Chamazi Stadium.
The rest of the fixture released by the Council of East and Central Africa Football Association, CECAFA, would remain intact until further notice.
The tournament’s opening match will be between Rwanda’s APR and South Sudan’s El Salaam Wau that kicks off at 14:00 hours ahead of the holders Yanga who encounters Burundi’s Atletico Olympique.
Most of the Kagame Cup championship teams have already arrived in Dar es Salaam.
