Tanzania Football Federation make headway with technical centre


Tanzania’s Football Federation will soon have its own technical centre at Kigamboni, Dar es Salaam.

This comes after the contract was reportedly signed with Group Six International.

The first phase will reportedly be completed in 18 months and would cost atleast US$4.5 million (R76 million).

Last year, the BBC reported that the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has made it clear that it will channel the money it receives from FIFA to develop its training and playing facilities.

Football’s world governing body resumed allocating money to the TFF after a three-year hiatus due to administrative irregularities.

At the time, the TFF President, Wallace Karia, welcomed FIFA’s decision to resume its funding including the arrears of almost US$3 million.

“We are going to make sure we use most of the FIFA money on development of facilities because we believe that with good facilities then football can easily flourish,” he added.

“We have suffered for the past three years without securing the FIFA grant.

“We will have to redevelop the technical centre in Dar es Salaam and also make sure that several centres are put up around the regions in Tanzania.”
