Tanzania Azam FC begin pre-season training ahead of the new season

Azam FC

Azam FC officially began their pre-season training yesterday for the upcoming 2024/2025 season at their home ground, Azam Complex at Chamazi.

The training session saw the introduction of the club’s new signings, Jhonier Blanco, Franck Tiesse, Adam Adam, and Nassor Sadun, marking a fresh start for the team as they prepare for the challenges ahead.

In a significant reshuffle, Azam also announced the departure of several players who will not be part of the squad next season. The players leaving the club include Ayoub Lyanga, Daniel Amoah, Edward Manyama, Malickou Ndoye, and Issa Ndala. Additionally, Prince Dube, who terminated his contract in March 2024, has also left the club.

Reports suggest that Dube may be on his way to join Young Africans, although no official confirmation has been made. The Ice cream makers have secured the services of goalkeeper Mohamed Mustafa on a permanent basis from Sudanese club El Merreikh.

The club had initially brought Mustafa in on a loan agreement, but after his impressive performances, they have decided to buy him outright. Mustafa will now remain with Azam until 2026, providing stability and experience in the goalkeeping department.

The 2023/2024 season saw Azam finish in second place in the Premier League standings, narrowly edging out Simba on goal difference. A crucial 2-0 away victory against Geita Gold on the final day of the campaign at Nyankumbu ground secured their position.

This remarkable achievement ensures that Azam, alongside champions Young Africans, will represent Mainland Tanzania in the CAF Champions League next season.
