The match will be played at the Chamazi Azam Stadium tomorrow as Twiga Stars seek to win the qualifier berth for the second time in six years.

The championship is scheduled to be staged in Cameroon later in October.

The Tanzania Football Federation’s information officer Baraka Kizuguto said the Zimbabwean side will jet in with a contingent comprising twenty players and six officials.

The TFF official said preparations for the match have been finalised as Twiga Stars await support from fans to dispatch the visitors.

In a build up towards the game Twiga Stars were bankrolled by TCRA, Assas Diary and an individual to the tune of 15 million shillings as a catalyst to win the match. The return leg of the qualifier will be played in Harare a fortnight later.

The last time a Tanzanian women soccer team qualified to feature in the AWC was in 2010 when South Africa hosted the tournament, just after the official FIFA World Cup.
