Tanzania Simba SC confirm date for Simba Day ahead of new season

Simba SC have officially announced that this year’s Simba Day will be celebrated on August 3 at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.

The announcement was made by the club’s information and communication manager, Ahmed Ally.

Traditionally held on August 8, each year, Simba Day has been rescheduled due to the Community Shield tournament coinciding with the original date. “It is now official that the peak of Simba Day will be August 3. It will not be possible to hold it on August 8 as usual, based on the Tanzania Football Federation calendar, as we will start the Community Shield tournament on that day,” said Ally.

Before the main event, Simba Week will kick off on July 24, featuring various social activities such as blood donation drives and contributions to those with special needs. These activities reflect the club’s commitment to community service and engagement.

Ally elaborated on the lineup of events planned for Simba Day, highlighting the mix of entertainment and a friendly match. “On that day, there will be great entertainment before starting the game itself, which we will use to introduce our team towards the 2024/25 Premier League season,” he said.

NzSimba have made it a tradition to use Simba Day to unveil new players and bid farewell to departing ones. The day is also marked by a friendly match, providing fans a glimpse of the team’s preparations and new roster for the upcoming season.
