TFF confirms transfer window dates for 2022/23 season

​​​​​​​WITH one season coming to a close, another one is on the horizon as football fans all over Tanzania are already excited for the 2022/23 campaign.

Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) Secretary-General, Wilfred Kidao.

The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has confirmed a two-month transfer window ahead, with clubs across the Mainland Premier League, Championship, First League, and Women’s Premier League able to sign players from July 1.

The TFF said in a statement: “ The registration window for NBC Premier League, Championship, First League, and Serengeti Lite Women's Premier League for the 2022/23 season will open on July 1, 2022, and close on August 31, 2022.”

The statement read: “During that period clubs are required to complete international registration and transfer.''

''All clubs should adhere to the same registration period, there will be no extra time after the window closes.”

“Anyone who faces a challenge should contact the TFF Competition Department.''

''In addition, the mini-transfer window will open on December 16, 2022, and close on January 15, 2023.”

The transfer windows are the periods in which teams can officially register any new players who were previously under contract with other clubs and for which an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) is required.

While deals may be agreed upon outside these windows, the transfer and receipt of an ITC are required to officially add a player to a roster, thus allowing him to be eligible for official competitions.

All in-season trades between clubs must take place within these transfer windows.

The transfer market allows clubs to sign new players and to sell those members of the squad they deem to be surplus to requirements based on the previous campaign.

Fans eagerly anticipate the business their beloved outfits will complete, while senior figures at clubs spend their time poring over the finances related to either a purchase or sale.

With only two rounds remaining for the 2021/22 campaign, plans are already in place for the new season.

Simba SC and Young Africans, alias 'Yanga', have already confirmed a couple of signings and contract renewals.

Yanga has signed Zambian attacker Lazarous Kambole as a free agent from South African side Kaizer Chiefs while Simba SC has confirmed Moses Phiri from Zambia as the side's first signing.

The newly-promoted side, Singida Big Stars, has also announced the signing of striker Habib Kyombo from Mbeya Kwanza FC.

One developing transfer to keep an eye on is Yanga and Simba SC’s pursuit of Ivory Coast's ASEC Mimosas star midfielder Stephane Aziz Ki.

The Burkina Faso international impressed in the 2021/22 CAF Confederation Cup and attracted the attention of both Simba SC and Yanga.
