Regional football associations have been urged to continue with under-15 children Copa Coca-Cola tournaments at district stages while waiting for sports gear and funds from the main sponsors of the championship.

According to the Tanzania Football Federation media officer, Boniface Wambura, the directive is in line with Copa Coca –Cola calendar that the district stages of the championship be played within the month of May.

The soccer’s governing body insisted that while waiting for the money and the materials, regions must advise their districts to continue with the tournaments while waiting for the sponsorship as promised.

Wambura said the sponsor of the championship has promised that the sponsorship money and materials will be available soon.

Coca –Cola has been sponsoring the tournaments, which are aimed at unearthing football talents, every year since 2007.
